At present biomedical applications are more attractive and significant due to their dire need in this modern age for humanity. Many types of materials have been investigated for biomedical applications but polymers are the largest and versatile class of biomaterials being extensively applied in multitude of biomedical applications. Polymers for biomedical application are non- toxic, biodegradable, biocompatible and meet the required specification for which they are intended because it has direct contact with the human body. In this study, poly[bis(p-oxyazobenzoic acid)phosphazenes](POABAP) was synthesized and used for biomedical applications such as hydrolytic degradation for drugs delivery etc for the social benefit of human beings.
