This paper describes the recent progress at Nottingham towards the exploitation of the unique properties of scCO(2) (supercritical carbon dioxide) for the preparation of polymeric scaffolds for tissue engineering applications and new devices for controlled drug delivery, as well as the synthesis of novel block copolymers by the combination of eROP (enzymatic ring opening polymerization) and controlled polymerization methods for the potential use as drug carriers.
