Biodegradable polymers, have extremely strong carbon backbones that are difficult to break, such that degradation often starts from the end-groups. Since the degradation begins at the end, a high surface area is common as it allows easy access for either the chemical, light, or organism.

Other properties of biodegradable polymers that are common among those used for medicinal usages include non-toxic, capable of maintaining good mechanical integrity until degraded, and capable of controlled rates of degradation.
