Complexation graft copolymer networks: swelling properties, calcium binding and proteolytic enzyme inhibition.

  title={Complexation graft copolymer networks: swelling properties, calcium binding and proteolytic enzyme inhibition.},
  author={Flemming Madsen and Nikolaos A. Peppas},
  volume={20 18},
Graft copolymer networks of poly(methacrylic acid-g-ethylene glycol) were prepared by free radical solution UV-polymerization of methacrylic acid (MAA) and poly(ethylene glycol) monomethacrylate. Dynamic swelling studies indicated that complexation/decomplexation processes occurred due to hydrogen bonding between the carboxylic groups of the poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) and the ether groups of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG). The effects of copolymer composition, graft chain molecular weight… CONTINUE READING
