Abstract: Polymeric materials made from natural compounds can improve the biocompatibility of biomaterials. Natural compounds such as bile acids can be used in the design and preparation of a variety of new polymers after chemical modifications. These materials range from self-healing hydrogels, degradable elastomers with shape-memory properties to hard dental restauration composites. They have shown promising potential for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.
