A block copolymer was developed consisting of poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) and poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) blocks. The former component allows the copolymer to be crosslinked, while the latter component allows the physical properties to be controlled. The compositions and segmental lengths of the two components were varied, and the copolymer was subsequently characterized.
