Biocompatibility and fatigue properties of polystyrene-polyisobutylene-polystyrene, an emerging thermoplastic elastomeric biomaterial.
The results presented in this paper indicate that, in comparison with silicone rubber, SIBS30 has similar biocompatibility and superior dynamic fatigue properties. Expand
Determination of mechanical and hydraulic properties of PVA hydrogels.
The identification of mechanical and hydraulic parameters of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogels is described, which follows the solution of inverse problem using experimental data from the unconfined compression test and the poroelastic creep model. Expand
Modification of Bacterial Cellulose with Quaternary Ammonium Compounds Based on Fatty Acids and Amino Acids and the Effect on Antimicrobial Activity.
A combination of [EDA][DLA-Tyr] and BC could be a promising new class of wound dressing displaying both biocompatibility and antimicrobial activity. Expand
A nanostructured carbon-reinforced polyisobutylene-based thermoplastic elastomer.
After 180 days of implantation into rabbit soft tissues, the carbon-reinforced thermoplastic elastomer had the thinnest tissue capsule around the microdumbbell specimens, with no eosinophiles present, and showed excellent integration into bones. Expand
Biocopolyesters of Poly(butylene succinate) Containing Long-Chain Biobased Glycol Synthesized with Heterogeneous Titanium Dioxide Catalyst
Poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) is a thermoplastic and biodegradable polyester characterized by high rigidity due to its high crystallinity. However, the use of long-chain biobased monomers to produceExpand
Poly(glycerol sebacate)/poly(butylene succinate-butylene dilinoleate) fibrous scaffolds for cardiac tissue engineering.
F fibrous PGS/PBS-DLA scaffolds exhibit promising characteristics as a biomaterial for cardiac patch applications as well as their physical, chemical, and mechanical properties. Expand
Interfacial Polarization in Thermoplastic Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Composites
It is concluded that substantially improved adhesion of PP/PBT BF-reinforced composites is the result of mutual interactions of functional groups of blend matrix, mostly from blend compatibilizer, and fiber surface due to sizing. Expand
Enzymatic Degradation of Poly(butylene succinate) Copolyesters Synthesized with the Use of Candida antarctica Lipase B
The obtained copolymers obtained by “green” enzymatic synthesis using lipase B from Candida antarctica are suitable for tissue engineering applications thanks to tuneable degradation and lack of acidification during breakdown. Expand
New injectable elastomeric biomaterials for hernia repair and their biocompatibility.
Developing for the first time, an injectable viscous material that can be converted to a solid and elastic implant in vivo, thus successfully closing herniated tissue is developed, demonstrating that new injectable and photocurable systems can be used for minimally invasive surgical protocols in repair of small hernia defects.

Adsorption of Fibrinogen and Fibronectin on Elastomeric Poly(butylene succinate) Copolyesters.
Assessing the potential of a series of elastomeric poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) copolymers for soft tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications predicts excellent cell adhesion and migration, key features enabling tissue integration of potential PBS-DLS scaffolds. Expand
