Elastomeric networks based on trimethylene carbonate polymers for biomedical applications : physical properties and degradation behaviour
Bat, Erhan (2010) Elastomeric networks based on trimethylene carbonate polymers for biomedical applications : physical properties and degradation behaviour. thesis.
|Abstract:||The number of applications for biomedical technologies is ever-increasing, and there
is a need to develop new materials with properties that can conform to the requirements of a
specific application. Synthetic polymers are of great importance in the biomedical field as
they can be designed to exhibit a wide range of physical- and biological properties and a
range of degradation profiles. Interest in biodegradable elastomers is increasing, particularly
for the engineering of soft and elastic tissues. These materials are also being utilized more and
more for controlled drug delivery purposes.
In this thesis, the development of biodegradable elastomers based on trimethylene
carbonate polymers using different approaches is presented.
