    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vapor phase grafting; covalent surface modification; solvent free; nano patterned topography; degradable polymers; poly ε-caprolactone ; poly L-lactide ; poly lactide-co-glycolide ; poly trimethylene carbonate ; N-vinylpyrrolidone; maleic anhydride; acrylamide; Gasfasympning; kovalent ytmodifiering; lösningsmedelsfri; nedbrytbara polymerer; nanomönstrad topografi; poly L-laktid ; poly ε-kaprolakton ; poly laktid-co-glykolid ; poly trimetylen karbonat ; N-vinylpyrrolidon; maleinsyraanhydrid; akrylamid; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : Degradable polymers have gained an increased attention in the field of biomedical applications over the past decades, for example in tissue engineering. One way of improving the biocompatibility of these polymers is by chemical surface modification, however the risk of degradation during the modification procedure is a limiting factor. READ MORE

  2. 2. Crystallisation of star polyesters with poly (ε-caprolactone) arms approaching the problem of early stages in polymer crystallisation

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Eugenia Núñez; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The knowledge regarding early stages in polymer crystallisation remains inconclusive due to experimental limitations. The reason is that the initially formed polymer crystals rearrange rapidly at the crystallisation temperature. Faster experimental techniques or simulation would be suitable alternatives to approach the problem. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aliphatic Polyesters for Soft Tissue Engineering : Development from Conventional Organometallic to Novel Enzymatic Catalysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Rajiv Kumar Srivastava; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aliphatic polyester; 1; 5-dioxepan-2-one; ε-caprolactone; L-lactide; D-lactide; D; L-lactide; enzyme; lipase CA; lipase PS; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : The development of macromolecules with defined structure and properties, aimed specifically for biomedical applications, has resulted in diverse biodegradable polymers with advanced architectures. Among them, aliphatic polyesters synthesized by ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactones and lactides have a leading position due to their good mechanical properties, hydrolyzability and biocompatibility.
