In this paper we describe the mechanical and biological features of a thermosetting polyester synthesized from glycerol and dodecanedioic acid named Poly-Glycerol-Dodecanoate (PGD). This polymer shows a glass transition temperature (T(g)) around 32 degrees C, and this accounts for its mechanical properties. At room temperature (21 degrees ) PGD behaves like a stiff elastic-plastic material, while at body temperature (37 degrees C), it shows a compliant non-linear elastic behavior. Together with… CONTINUE READING
