  1. 1. Exploring bio-based monomers for UV-curable polymer networks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sara Brännström; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bio-based; polymers; vinyl ether; polyester; photopolymerization; lipase; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Increased environmental awareness and concern has led to a high demand for sustainable, bio-based materials. Consequently, there is a need for research and development of new bio-based polymeric materials that can be synthesized via routes eliminating excessively toxic reactants and by-products. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fabrication of polymeric microfluidic devices via photocurable liquid monomers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Klas Tommy Haraldsson; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Photopolymerization; radical photopolymerization; polymerization kinetics; photoinitiation; vinyl ether; maleate; vinyloxy; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : Microfluidic devices have long been considered an ideal tool for rapid and inexpensive chemical analysis and reactions in areas ranging from point-of-care health to national security applications. However, fabricating microfluidic devices is time consuming, difficult and above all expensive. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functional Copolymers of Polyvinylpyrrolidone

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jonas Engström; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; suspension polymerization; functional monomers; 1-vinylpyrrolidin-2-one; copolymerization; swelling; crosslinking; solid-phase synthesis; drug delivery vehicles.; phase-selective solubility; beads; Polyvinylpyrrolidone;

    Abstract : In many ways, polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) has a unique combination of chemical and physical properties. Unlike most polymers it is soluble in water as well as a number of organic solvents. PVP also has excellent film forming properties, outstanding chemical stability, complexing ability, low toxicity, and good adherence to many different substrates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Synthesis of functional degradable polymers by radical ring-opening polymerization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jenny Undin; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; tissue engineering; ring-opening polymerization; 2; 2´-azoisobutyronitrile; cyclic ketene acetals; 2-methylene- 1; 3; 6-trioxocane; 2-methylene- 1; 3-dioxepane; vinyl acetate; coopolymerization;

    Abstract : The increased demand for understanding cell-material interactions and subsequently create personalized implants for tissue engineering has resulted in an increased interest in developing new monomers with functional groups. The focus of the work presented in this thesis has been on the synthesis of functional monomers and the polymerization of these into functional amorphous aliphatic polyesters. READ MORE

  5. 5. Functional Degradable Polymers by a Radical Chemistry approach

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jenny Undin; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : One class of polymers that is inherently of great value for many applications is the aliphatic polyesters. Such polymers are very suitable for use as temporary guides, scaffolds, for tissue formation and other biomedical applications, due to their biocompatibility, degradability and appropriate mechanical properties.
