Preparation of new biocompatible materials for bone recovery has consistently gained interest in the last few decades. Special attention was given to polymers that contain negatively charged groups, such as phosphate, carboxyl, and sulfonic groups toward calcification. This present paper work demonstrates that other functional groups present also potential application in bone pathology. New copolymers of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate with diallyldimethylammonium chloride (DADMAC), glycidyl…

RAFT copolymerization of a phosphorus-containing monomer with α-hydroxy phosphonate and methyl methacrylate

Phosphorus-containing polymers have been found wide applications in many fields. In this work, a new kind of phosphorus-containing monomer with α-hydroxy phosphonate

Poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate-co-dodecyl methacrylate-co-acrylic acid): synthesis, physico-chemical characterisation and nafcillin carrier

A mathematical model of the reactivity ratios of the comonomers in the terpolymer has been conceived and analyzed and an intensified tendency of AA units accumulation in the copolymers has been noticed, in spite of HEMA units.

Mechanical loading, an important factor in the evaluation of ion release from bone augmentation materials

It was observed that both cyclic and static compressive loading significantly increased the release of strontium ions in comparison to the static unloaded case, suggesting that the mechanical loading of the implantation environment should be considered when evaluating the ion release kinetics.

A Microfluidic Approach to Synthesize Monodisperse Poly (2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate) Based Spherical Microgels via Water in Water Emulsion Technique

Monodisperse spherical microdroplets of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (p-HEMA) were prepared by in situ UV photopolymerization process via water-in-water emulsion technique in a 3-dimentional

Recent advances in “living”/controlled radical polymerization of phosphorus-containing monomers and their potential applications

Special research attention has been paid to phosphorus-containing materials and their corresponding applications. This mini review considers recent publications devoted to the “living”/controlled



The in vivo calcification capacity of a copolymer, based on methacryloyloxyethyl phosphate, does not favor osteoconduction.

Polyphosphated materials do not represent a suitable source of potentially usable bone substitutes and must present suitable mechanical and osteoconductive properties to be interesting alternatives to bone grafts.

Characterization of bone cements prepared with functionalized methacrylates and hydroxyapatite

It was found that residual monomer was not greatly affected by the presence of either acid or basic comonomers in the unfilled bone cements, and molecular weight, curing times, and glass transition temperature were composition dependent.
