This paper describes the synthesis and characterization of a block copolymer of L-lactide (LL) and epsilon -caprolactone (CL) and its subsequent melt spinning into a monofilament fiber. The synthesis reaction was a two-step process. In the first step, an approximately 50:50 mol% random copolymer, P(LL-co-CL), was synthesized via bulk copolymerization of LL(More)
Forty agricultural soils were collected from Chiang Mai and Lampang provinces in northern Thailand. Bacteria, actinomycetes and fungi were isolated and screened for their ability to degrade polylactic acid (PLA), polycaprolactone (PCL) and poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) by the agar diffusion method. Sixty-seven actinomycetes, seven bacteria and five fungal(More)
Electrospinning can produce nanofibrous scaffolds that mimic the architecture of the extracellular matrix and support cell attachment for tissue engineering applications. In this study, fibrous membranes of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) with various loadings of poly(L-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone) (PLCL) were successfully prepared by electrospinning. In comparison(More)
Stem cells based tissue engineering requires biocompatible materials, which allow the cells to adhere, expand, and differentiate in a large scale. An ideal biomaterial for clinical application should be free from mammalian products which cause immune reactivities and pathogen infections. We invented a novel biodegradable(More)
In this study, for the first time, a biodegradable poly(L-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone), PLC 67:33 copolymer was developed for use as temporary scaffolds in reconstructive nerve surgery. The effect of the surface topology and pore architecture were studied on the biocompatibility for supporting the growth of human umbilical cord Wharton's jelly-derived(More)
A theoretical investigation of the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) mechanism of ε-caprolactone (CL) with tin(II) alkoxide, Sn(OR)₂ initiators (R = n-C₄H₉, i-C₄H₉, t-C₄H₉, n-C₆H₁₃, n-C₈H₁₇) was studied. The density functional theory at B3LYP level was used to perform the modeled reactions. A coordination-insertion mechanism was found to occur via two(More)
This study aims to find the optimal medium and conditions for polylactic acid (PLA)-degrading enzyme production by Amycolatopsis sp. SCM_MK2-4. Screening of the most effective components in the enzyme production medium by Plackett-Burman design revealed that the silk cocoon and PLA film were the most significant variables enhancing the PLA-degrading enzyme(More)
Methoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide-co-εcaprolactone) diblock copolymers, designated as MPEG-b-PDLLGCL, with different MPEG block lengths and DLL:G:CL ratios were synthesized via ring-opening polymerization in bulk using MPEG and stannous octoate as the initiating system. The diblock copolymers were characterized using a(More)
