Marine organisms are abundant and rich in different types of compounds creating a huge opportunity for sustainable exploration of these materials. New types of materials and compounds are being extracted from marine sources that exhibit great interest for novel biomedical and biotechnological applications. Marine products isolated in recent decades have come as a valuable resource to pharmaceutical industries, since a lot of compounds can be used as active principles in different therapeutic areas.1  Although these isolated compounds are being used to create libraries of compounds of pharmaceutical interest, the materials extracted are highly versatile. The biopolymers found in marine...
