Synthesis and characterization of hyperbranched polyglycerol hydrogels.

Abstract

Hyperbranched polyglycerol (HyPG; M(n) 2000g/mol) was derivatized with glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) in dimethyl sulfoxide using 4-(N,N-dimethylamino)pyridine as a catalyst to obtain methacrylated HyPG (HyPG-MA). The degree of substitution (DS, the percentage of derivatized hydroxyl groups), established by NMR and RP-HPLC, was fully controlled in the range of… (More)
