Water-Triggered Shape Memory of PCL-PEG Multiblock TPUS

Patrick Mather (Inventor), Xinzhu Gu (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


Water-triggered shape memory polymers based on poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) multiblock hybrid thermoplastic polyurethanes. Urethane linkages were formed through the addition reaction between isocyanate groups of the lysine methyl-ester diisocyanate (LDI) and the hydroxyl groups of either (PEG) or PCL diol.
