Introduction[edit]

Hi Mmbyron, because you asked for improvements I just want to let you know that in my opinion the introductional part conatins a little mistake: "polyanhydrides degrade into non-toxic diacid monomers that can be metabolized and eliminated from the body". I think I do understand what is meant which is probably that Polyanhydrides have the potential to be used in vivo because after biotic degradation the monomer is left and in general they are non-toxic. But in fact there are toxic dicarbonic acids like acetylenedicarboxylic acid (which is probably not the best example). But hopefully you can follow my argumentation in spite of my bad english. Sorry for that. Thornfalko (talk) 15:01, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
