Amphiphilic conetworks (APCNs), consisting of hydrophilic poly[poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ester acrylate] (PPEGMEA) and hydrophobic stereocomplex of poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) and poly(D-lactide) (PDLA), were prepared by free radical copolymerization of PEGMEA with acrylate macromonomer of the PLA stereocomplex. The effects of stereocomplexation and the amount of PLA stereocomplex on the rheology properties of APCNs were investigated. The results indicated that the APCNs was stronger in the… CONTINUE READING
