Abstract: Natural polymers which are water-soluble or can be rendered water-soluble by chemical modification have been the subject of extensive technical reviews and original research reports, over the past fifty years. Early interests in this area were associated with the food, leather, paper and textile industries and to a lesser extent, the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Proteins, such as collagen and gelatin, as well as polysaccharides, such as cellulose derivatives and starch, were dominant among all natural polymers and their derivatives. Over the past 20 years and until recently, the polymer and allied industries have focused on synthetic polymers and limited to moderate level of efforts were directed toward the modification of natural polymers. With the new interests in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries in these polymers over the past few years, impressive activities on the modification of natural polymers to meet the growing needs are being recognized and noted in
