Abstract

This study aimed to provide a review of the current status of the biomimetic adhesives that have the potential for clinical application. Biomimetic materials emulate compounds and properties with a biological origin. They have grown to be more relevant in medical fields due to biocompatibility, low toxicity, and a less damaging impact on the environment. Bonding living tissues has proved to be difficult due to the adverse immune reactions to foreign materials and the wet environment of the damaged area. There is a need for biomimetic adhesives due to the shortcomings of synthetic adhesives and metal tools required for wound closure. Despite differences in developmental approaches and organismal properties, the biomimetic adhesives developed have the potential to be used in wet environments with enough strength to help bond the tissues together without any supporting materials.
