  journal={Biotechnology Letters},
The Sorona family of polymers, based on corn-derived 1,3-propanediol, have recently been developed as novel bio-based materials for use in plastics, films, and fibers. In the present study, Sorona polymers were investigated for their effects on cell survival and inflammatory cell activation using in vitro mouse cell cultures. Cytotoxicity of Sorona polymers was evaluated by placing material samples in direct contact with 3T3 fibroblast cells. Both Sorona plastic and Sorona films were non… CONTINUE READING
