Degradation kinetics of methacrylated dextrans in aqueous solution.

The kinetics of the hydrolysis of glycidyl methacrylate derivatized dextran (dex-MA), hydroxyethyl methacrylate derivatized dextran (dex-Hema, and hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) were systematically investigated in aqueous solution in the H0/pH range of -1.8 to 10.4 at 37 degrees C. The degradation products were quantified with reversed-phase HPLC and used… CONTINUE READING
