These days biopolymers reminiscent of agar, agarose, alginate, carageenan, cellulose, chitin, chitosan, collagen, hyaluronic acid, gelatin, glucan, starch, DNA, RNA and protein were made from laboratory to business scale. The physico-chemical homes of those biopolymers resembling chemical compositions, solubility, molecular weight and viscosity are of significant value at the training of micro- and nanomaterials akin to powder, resolution, hydrogel, micro- and nano-sized pores in membrane, micro- and nano-fiber, macro- and micro-beads, nano-particles, and micro- and nano-structured scaffold. those micro and nano-materials were utilized in a variety of sectors comparable to agriculture, meals, drugs, and so on. This monograph will handle the resource and creation tools of biopolymers, houses of biopolymers, practise of micro- and nano-materials utilizing biopolymers, characterization of micro- and nano-biomaterials and alertness of micro- and nano-biomaterials
