Maleic Anhydride ChemistryApplications of Maleic Anhydride Chemistry in Skin Care, Biomedical Devices, and Transdermal Delivery – Part III

By Roger L. McMullen
In the first two articles of this series we discussed several applications of maleic anhydride chemistry to phenomenon occurring in skin. Numerous examples of the use of maleic anhydride and its derivatives can be found in patent publications and the literature. Polymers of maleic anhydride are especially well known for their bioadhesive properties, and are used extensively in the biomedical industry. Somewhat related, the same types of polymers found their way into personal care adhesive strips designed to remove unwanted keratotic debris. In a much different application, maleic anhydride derivatives made headway into antiperspirant formulations where they help to reduce the concentration of aluminum salts. Transdermal drug delivery is another explosive area where hydrogels made of maleic anhydride polymers act as key ingredients of the delivery formulation …. MORE

2-Day Rheology Class on March 19-20, 2015 at Princeton University

Special thanks to Joe Alabnese (NYSCC event organizer) and Dr. Hemi Nae of Hydan Technologies who brought his acclaimed 2-day Practical Rheology Course to Princeton, NJ. The study and measurement of rheological properties was the study subject for chemists, formulators and other scientists interested in the personal care industry. Joining Hemi were instrument vendors explaining their rheometers.
