Time Dependence of Material Properties of Polyethylene Glycol Hydrogels Chain Extended with Short Hydroxy Acid Segments.

Abstract

The objective of this work was to investigate the effect of chemical composition and segment number (n) on gelation, stiffness, and degradation of hydroxy acid-chain-extended star polyethylene glycol acrylate (SPEXA) gels. The hydroxy acids included glycolide (G,), L-lactide (L), p-dioxanone (D) and -caprolactone (C). Chain-extension generated water soluble… (More)
