Abstract

The material properties and biocompatibility of the self-crosslinkable poly(caprolactone fumarate) (PCLF) copolymer were investigated. PCLF was synthesized by condensation polymerization of PCL with fumaryl chloride in methylene chloride with triethylamine as the catalyst. GPC was used to determine the molecular weight and polydispersity of the PCLF macromer. Results show that the biocompatible PCLF macromer is potentially useful as a self-crosslinkable scaffold for guided tissue generation.
