Abstract A non-toxic hydrolytically fast-degradable antibacterial hydrogel is herein presented to preemptively treat surgical site infections during the first crucial 24 h period without relying on conventional antibiotics. The approach capitalizes on a two-component system that form antibacterial hydrogels within 1 min and consist of i) an amine functional linear-dendritic hybrid based on linear poly(ethylene glycol) and dendritic 2,2-bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid, and ii) a di-N-hydroxysuccinimide functional poly(ethylene glycol) cross-linker. Broad spectrum antibacterial effect is achieved by multivalent representation of catatonically charged ?-alanine on the dendritic periphery of the linear dendritic component. The hydrogels can be applied readily in an in vivo setting using a two-component syringe delivery system and the mechanical properties can accurately be tuned in the range equivalent to fat tissue and cartilage (G? = 0.5?8 kPa). The antibacterial effect is demonstrated both in vitro toward a range of relevant bacterial strains and in an in vivo mouse model of surgical site infection.

Abstract [en]

Herein we present the first scientific report on the commercially available Helux 33/16 - a heterofunctional poly(amido amine carboxylate) hyperbranched polymer (Native Helux). The Native Helux, built from diethyl maleate (DEM) and diaminohexane (HMDA), was characterized, in part aided by reverse engineering of a similar scaffold with the same monomers. Different purification methods resulted in higher molecular weight polymers ranging from 8.4 to 51.7 kDa (M-w), and the Helux considered the purest, having 10 mmol (primary and secondary amines)/g as well as 2-4 mmol carboxylic/g Helux. Additionally, aqueous-mediated postmodifications of Helux were achieved including Michael addition, guanylation, and ring-opening of sultone, as well as water/ethyl acetate-mediated amidation of imidazole-activated pentenoic acid. The inherent heterofunctionality of Helux, amines and carboxylic groups, was further explored by a one-component self-cross-linking approach that yielded a dendritic poly(amido amine) network with autofluorescence-exhibiting properties and a T-g of 59 degrees C. The Helux network exhibited a storage modulus (G') of 7.9 MPa at 25 degrees C and in dry state, and 0.9 MPa (G') when plasticized by 50 wt % swelling (in water) of the network. Finally, dendritic hydrogels based on Helux were produced by a spontaneous NHS-amidation reaction with difunctional 10kPEG-NHS. The mechanical properties of the hydrogels were found to be dependent on the curing temperature for the hydrogel, yielding a G' of 8 and 14.5 kPa, a stress at break of 11.5 and 22.7 kPa, and a strain-at-break of 161 and 163%, at 25 and 37 degrees C, respectively.

Abstract [en]

Polycarbonates from isosorbide and dihydroxyacetone (DHA) have been synthesised using organocatalytic step-growth polymerization of their corresponding diols and bis-carbonylimidazolides monomers. By choice of feed ratio and monomer activation, either isosorbide or ketal protected DHA, random and alternating poly(Iso-co-DHA) carbonates have been formed. Thermal properties by DSC and TGA were herein strongly correlated to monomer composition. Dilution studies using 1H-NMR of a model compound DHA-diethyl carbonate in acetonitrile and deuterated water highlighted the influence of α-substituents on the keto/hydrate equilibrium of DHA. Further kinetics studies of in the pH* range of 4.7 to 9.6 serve to show the hydrolytic pH-profile of DHA-carbonates. The Hydrolytic degradation of deprotected polymer pellets show an increased degradation with increasing DHA content. Pellets with a random or alternating configuration show different characteristics in terms of mass loss and molecular weight loss profile over time.

Abstract [en]

The underlying mechanism related to freezing-induced crosslinking of aldehyde-containing cellulose nanofibrils (CNFs) has been investigated, and the critical parameters behind this process have been identified. The aldehydes introduced by periodate oxidation allows for formation of hemiacetal bonds between the CNFs provided the fibrils are in sufficiently close contact before the water is removed. This is achieved during the freezing process where the cellulose components are initially separated, and the growth of ice crystals forces the CNFs to come into contact in the thin lamellae between the ice crystals. The crosslinked 3-D structure of the CNFs can subsequently be dried under ambient conditions after solvent exchange and still maintain a remarkably low density of 35 kg m-3, i.e. a porosity greater than 98%. A lower critical amount of aldehydes, 0.6 mmol g-1, was found necessary in order to generate a crosslinked 3-D CNF structure of sufficient strength not to collapse during the ambient drying. The chemical stability of the 3-D structure can be further enhanced by converting the hemiacetals to acetals by treatment with an alcohol under acidic conditions.
