Recent developments in ring opening polymerization of lactones for biomedical applications.
This review presents the various methods of the synthesis of polyesters and tailoring the properties by proper control of molecular weight, composition, and architecture so as to meet the stringent requirements of devices in the medical field.
From lactic acid to poly(lactic acid) (PLA): characterization and analysis of PLA and its precursors.
The significance of the analyses for the different polymer production stages is considered, and special applications of the methods for studying features specific for PLA-based materials are highlighted.
Oxygen barrier materials from renewable sources: Material properties of softwood hemicellulose‐based films
The aim of this study was to investigate the film-forming ability of the hemicellulose O-acetyl-galactoglucomannan (AcGGM) and to evaluate its potential as a barrier material. The polymer film was ...
Controlled Ring-Opening Polymerization: Polymers with designed Macromolecular Architecture
This paper reviews ring-opening polymerization of lactones and lactides with different types of initiators and catalysts as well as their use in the synthesis of macromolecules with advanced
