The hydrolytic degradation of a series of segmented polyurethane (SPU) copolymers with potential for biomedical use has been investigated. A series of polyurethane copolymers were prepared from 1,6 - diisocyanatohexane (HDI), polycaprolactone diol (PCL), 2,2 - bis(hydroxymethyl) propionic acid (DMPA) and ethylene glycol (EG). The synthesized SPUs have a low soft segment glass transition temperature, a melting temperature around 50 °C, and a significant tailorable hardness for tissue engineering… CONTINUE READING
