Polyurethanes based on dihydroxamic acids. Synthesis, chemical characterization, and biological activity.


A series of segmented polyurethanes based on polyethylene oxide/polycaprolactone diol, isophorone diisocyanate, and dihydroxamic acids were synthesized and characterized. Biocompatibility and antitumoral activity were in vivo tested on Wistar male rats and Wistar rats affected with Walker 256 carcinosarcoma, respectively. The effect of dihydroxamic acid… (More)
