Scientific Summary of Superconducting Seaweed
Biopolymers are natural macromolecules, which are produced by living organisms. Biopolymers are polymers having monomeric units that are bonded covalently to produce larger structures. They are used in information storage and transfer, and are also helpful in giving structure, strength, and flexibility to the natural substances. They have also been used in protection. Biopolymers are of different types. These are neutral polysaccharides such as amylase (starch), anionic polysaccharides such as alginate, polyphenols such as lignin, polypeptides such as gelatin, and cationic polysaccharides such as chitosan. Gels are made of double helical filamentous structures in which water is incorporated.
