Biocompatible Phosphorus-based Monomers for Radical Polymerization

  • Claudia Dworak (a1), Christian Heller (a2), Franz Varga (a3) and Robert Liska (a4)

Novel biocompatible and biodegradable monomers based on phosphorus-containing vinyl esters and vinyl carbamates for radical photopolymerization were prepared. By photo-Differential Scanning Calorimetry (photo-DSC) the reactivity of the mono-, di- and trifunctional monomers was investigated. Furthermore, their cytotoxicity, mechanical properties and hydrolytic degradation behavior were evaluated, aiming at a future application of our compounds in the biomedical area.
