Synthesis and degradation of a tri-component copolymer derived from glycolide, L-lactide, and epsilon-caprolactone.

Abstract

A series of tri-component copolymers was synthesized by ring opening copolymerization of cyclic lactones, i.e. glycolide, L-lactide, and caprolactone, using stannous octoate as a catalyst. Various techniques, including FT-IR, 1H NMR, DSC, X-ray diffraction, tensile strength, and contact angle measurements, were used to elucidate structural characteristics… (More)
