The development of new tissue adhesives (TAs) has been very slow, to say the least, for the past decade. Synthesis of new TAs is by and large through trial and error and therefore very costly and time consuming. This thesis introduces some new aspects of study into the field of TA with the intent of assisting and even guiding the choice of functional groups that may promote adhesiveness in TAs.
