The nontoxic, neutral degradation products of amino acid ester polyphosphazenes make them ideal candidates for in vivo orthopedic applications. The quest for new osteocompatible materials for load bearing tissue engineering applications has led us to investigate mechanically competent amino acid ester substituted polyphosphazenes. In this study, we have(More)
Currently employed bone tissue engineered scaffolds often lack the potential for vascularization, which may be enhanced through the incorporation of and regulated release of angiogenic factors. For this reason, the objective here was to fabricate and characterize protein-loaded amino acid ester polyphosphazene (Pphos)-based scaffolds and evaluate the novel(More)
Ballistic performance, at effective strain rates of (10–10 s ), for polymeric dicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) was compared with two epoxy resin/diamine systems with comparable glass transition temperatures. The high rate response was characterized in terms of a projectile penetration kinetic energy, KE50, which describes the projectile kinetic energy at a(More)
Two new cyclotriphosphazene ligands with pendant 2,2':6',2″-terpyridine (Terpy) moieties, namely, (pentaphenoxy){4-[2,6-bis(2-pyridyl)]pyridoxy}cyclotriphosphazene (L(1)), (pentaphenoxy){4-[2,6-terpyridin-4-yl]phenoxy}cyclotriphosphazene (L(2)), and their respective polymeric analogues, L(1P) and L(2P), were synthesized. These ligands were used to form(More)
