A versatile three-iodine molecular building block leading to new radiopaque polymeric biomaterials.

Abstract

A methacrylic monomer containing three iodine atoms, 2- [2',3',5'-triiodobenzoyl]-ethyl methacrylate (compound 1), was prepared in pure form. Compound 1 can be reacted with other methacrylates, such as methyl methacrylate (MMA), and 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) with high conversion. Typically, less than 0.5% of free monomer is left after… (More)
