Abstract [en]

The object for our research is to mimic Nature's perfectly designed resorbable materials to obtain important materials, which are biocompatible and degradable. We have therefore synthesized different architectures and copolymers of aliphatic polyesters with ring-opening polymerization. The first studies of these materials properties show that properties like hydrophilicity and tensile properties can be controlled.
