Notes on the editing of this page[edit]

This page is all messed up. I started to fix it into what I thought would be a more coherent form however now I myself am questioning wither or not Polynucleotide polymers are indeed Biopolymers. They are indeed in all living organisms but that has no bearing that they are created by living organisms. I changed the header and grouped biopolymers into their three categories. These can be expounded upon a bit. Was thinking about changing the nomenclature section to examples of each of the three categories. Would not human made polymers be biopolymers? Now the question becomes is there a significant difference between polymers and biopolymers.

Copyright problem[edit]

‎ This article has been reverted to an earlier version as part of a large-scale clean-up project of multiple article copyright infringement. (See the investigation subpage) Text entered in [1] duplicated at least in part material from [2]. Other content added by this contributor has been copied from other sources. For instance, in this edit, content was copied from Herman Francis Mark Encyclopedia of polymer science and engineering (1985). Although only snippet views of the book are available, we can verify verbatim copying of the following: "If left in place, however, conventional films can cause problems during harvesting or during cultivating operations the next year. Removal and disposal", [3]. "are costly and inconvenient. Therefore, interest in the development of biodegradable or photodegradable films with short service lifetimes has grown. Although a large number of polymer types could be designed for controlled degradation, only a few have been commercialized." [4]. Given the need for the contributor copyright investigation, other content added by this contributor has been presumptively removed in accordance with Wikipedia:Copyright violations. Earlier text must not be restored, unless it can be verified to be free of infringement. Content added by other contributors subsequent to the introduction of this material can be restored if it does not merge with this text to create a derivative work. For legal reasons, Wikipedia cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions must be deleted. Contributors may use sources as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences or phrases. Accordingly, the material may be rewritten, but only if it does not infringe on the copyright of the original or plagiarize from that source. Please see our guideline on non-free text for how to properly implement limited quotations of copyrighted text. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously. ----Moonriddengirl (talk) 22:54, 22 December 2010 (UTC)


Surely proteins are also biopolymers. But the current article does not say so. Am I misunderstanding something? --Ettrig (talk) 08:05, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Biopolymer. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
