Biodegradable elastomeric networks: highly efficient cross-linking of poly(trimethylene carbonate) by gamma irradiation in the presence of pentaerythritol triacrylate.

Abstract

Biodegradable elastomeric poly(trimethylene carbonate) (PTMC) networks were efficiently formed by gamma irradiating the linear polymer in the presence of pentaerythritol triacrylate (PETA). The properties of networks formed upon irradiation of PTMC films containing (0, 1, 5 wt %) PETA as a cross-linking aid were evaluated. The gel contents and network… (More)
