Thermoplastic biodegradable elastomers based on ε-caprolactone and L-lactide block copolymers : a new synthetic approach. Acta biomaterialia.||Series/Report no.:||Acta biomaterialia||Abstract:||Although biodegradable polymers have found extensive application in medical devices, there are very few commercially available elastomeric biodegradable polymers. In this work, starting with the well-known monomers L-lactide and ε-caprolactone, we developed elastomers using a multiblock copolymer approach. This ensures that the degradation products of such elastomers are also acceptable from a cytotoxicity standpoint.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/101278
