    MALDI-TOF MS Reveals the Molecular Level Structures of Different Hydrophilic-Hydrophobic Polyether-esters2009In: Biomacromolecules, ISSN 1525-7797, E-ISSN 1526-4602, Vol. 10, no 6, p. 1540-1546Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Multi- and triblock copolymers based on 1,5-dioxepan-2-one/epsilon-caprolactone (DXO/CL) were investigated by MALDI-TOF MS to determine the influence of copolymer composition and architecture on the molecular structures at the individual chain level. The copolymer compositions, average block lengths, and molecular weights were determined by H-1 and C-13 NMR and by SEC, respectively. The structures of polyether-ester oligomers (linear, cyclic) as well as the chemical structures of their end groups were established on the basis of their MALDI-TOF mass spectra. The mass spectrum of PDXO homopolymer was relatively simple, however, complex mass spectra were obtained in the case of multi- and triblock copolymers and the mass spectra clearly discerned the molecular level effect of copolymer composition and copolymer type.

    Abstract [sv]

    Kemi – handlar inte det bara om farliga ämnen och onödiga tillsatser? Det är kanske bildenmånga har av kemi, men faktum är att utan kemi skulle vi inte ha det höga välstånd vi har i dag.Tack vare kemisk kunskap har vi tillgång till läkemedel som botar sjukdomar och lindrar smärta– med hjälp av syntetiska antibiotika kan infektionssjukdomar som tidigare var dödliga botas,magsår kan behandlas utan dyra och plågsamma operationer och många cancerformer kanframgångsrikt behandlas med syntetiska preparat. Konstgödsel och medel som hindrar skadeinsektergör att skördar kan ökas och svälten i världen därigenom begränsas. Tack vare kemin harvi även tillgång till alla de material vi behöver för att tillverka allt från kläder, rengöringsprodukteroch kosmetika till bilar, TV-apparater och reservdelar till kroppen. Det är genom kemisk syntes vikan framställa dessa och alla de övriga produkter vi behöver för vårt dagliga liv och det är keminsom visar vägen till hållbar produktion som utnyttjar förnybara råvaror och ger minimala mängderavfall. Kemisk kunskap är också oumbärlig för utveckling av nanoteknik och medicinskdiagnostik och andra till kemin angränsande områden. Kemin bidrar alltså till att finna lösningartill många av de komplexa globala problem vi står inför: hälsa, klimat, brist på råvaror, utnyttjandetav nya energikällor och tillgång till livsmedel för att föda jordens ökande befolkning.

    Long-Term Properties of Polyolefins2004Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We dedicate the current volume entitled "Long-Term Properties of Polyolefins"to Professor Kausch on his 25th anniversary as editor of Advances in PolymerScience. Professor Kausch pioneered the work on molecular effects in thefracture of polymers. This is beautifully summarized in his books on polymerfracture. Professor Kausch is also the perfect gentleman - always eager to helpnewcomers to make their entrance into the scientific community and to assisthis colleagues in their work and accomplishments. With his work, ProfessorKausch has demonstrated the importance of "source science" - to present newdata - and to present reviews of previously published material. This book ispresented in the spirit of Professor Kausch, namely showing a good selection ofdata and explaining what they mean.The main focus of this book is the relation between structure and propertiesand the trend towards better quality and reproducibility. The first chapterdescribes the metallocene polymerisation catalysts and their possihility notonly of tailoring polymer properties but also of manufacturing entirely newmaterials. Due to improved control of microstructure, it will also be possible toproduce specialty polyolefins which could compete with non-olefinic polymers.The next chapter shows how in each new development step catalyst and processinnovations have gone hand in hand and how the control over polymer structureand the ability to tailor material properties has increased. For a betterunderstanding of properties and behaviour, the basic of morphology is fundamentaland is described in chapter three, followed by chapter four aboutfracture properties and microdeformation behaviour. Promising model systemsfor the investigations of the relations between crack-tip deformation, fractureand molecular structure are also presented. Chapter five gives an overviewof stabilization of polyethylene crucial for long-term properties. Two mainapproaches have been used; the first advocates the use of biological antioxidants,and the second relies on the use of reactive antioxidants that are chemicallyattached onto the polymer backbone for greater performance and safety.Chemiluminescence is presented as a too1 for studying the initial stages inoxidative degradation and is explained in chapter six. However, for many years,tailor-made structures specially designed for environmental degradation havealso been a reality. One of the key questions for successhl development and useof environmentally degradable polymers is the interaction between the degradationprodncts and nature and this is illustrated in chapter seven. The developmentof chromatographic methods and use of chromatographic fingerprintinggives not only degradation products bnt also information about degradationmechanisms as well as interaction between the polymer and different environments.The obstacles and possibilities for recycling of polyolefins are discussedin chapter eigbt with special emphasis on analytical methods useful in theqnality concept. It is also shown how recycled material could be a valuable resourcein the Future together with renewable resources. Finally, chapter ninegives examples of existing as we11 as emerging techniques of surface modificationof polyethylene.These chapters together will hopefuiiy inspire to a new generation of polyethyleneby mimicking nature and use of new molecular architecture, newmorphology and also "activated" additives in microdomains, with even morereproducible properties within oarrow limits and with predetermined lifetimes.

    Synthesis of core-shell structured carboxylated microparticles with a straightforward procedure and their evaluation as a polymer support2005In: Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry, ISSN 0887-624X, E-ISSN 1099-0518, Vol. 43, no 23, p. 5889-5898Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Poly(trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate) microspheres with a narrow size distribution were obtained by precipitation polymerization. They were subsequently modified by surface grafting with acrylic acid in a polar ethanol-water reaction medium, without stabilizer, yielding core-shell particles with diameters in the micrometer range. The resulting polymeric material was characterized by SEM and potentiometric titration, FTIR spectroscopy, and thermal analysis. It was shown that the particle characteristics (size, size distribution, and functionality) obtained by this straightforward procedure can be controlled by modifying the synthesis parameters (monomer concentration, agitation rate, and temperature). The high functionality, the chemical and physico-mechanical stability, as well as the possibility to control the performances of the resulting polymeric materials by synthesis allow its applications in various areas. Envisaging separation and catalysis domains, Cu(II), Cd(II), and Cr(III) uptake capacity from aqueous solutions was investigated under noncompetitive conditions as a function of synthesized particle functionality, time, and pH range. It was also found that the addition of the carboxylated. microparticles to polyethylene stabilized with alpha-tocopherol improved the thermo-oxidative behaviour of the polymeric material.

    Abstract [en]

    1,5-dioxepan-2-one (DXO) is presented as a versatile component in biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications. Copolymerization of DXO and L-lactide yielded a semi-crystalline, yet flexible, material where the extent of crystallinity and erosion characteristics were controlled by an appropriate choice of copolymer composition. Crosslinked PDXO was polymerized as a novel biodegradable elastomer. The degradation behavior of these materials were explored in vitro. Microspheres from poly(DXO-co-L-LA) were prepared and shown to be promising candidates for controlled release. The polymer composition and drug solubility provided effective means of controlling the drug delivery pattern.

    Molecular weight changes and polymeric matrix changes correlated with the formation of degradation products in biodegraded polyethylene1999In: Journal of environmental polymer degradation, ISSN 1064-7546, E-ISSN 1572-8900, Vol. 64, p. 91-99Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The molecular weight changes in abiotically and biotically degraded LDPE and LDPE modified with starch and/or prooxidant were compared with the formation of degradation products, The samples were thermooxidized for 6 days at 100 degrees C to initiate degradation and then either inoculated with Arthobacter paraffineus or kept sterile. After 3.5 years homologous series of mono- and dicarboxylic acids and ketoacids were identified by GC-MS in abiotic samples, while complete disappearance of these acids was observed in biotic environments. The molecular weights of the biotically aged samples were slightly higher than the molecular weights of the corresponding abiotically aged samples, which is exemplified by the increase in (M) over bar(n) from 5200 g/mol for a sterile sample with the highest amount of prooxidant to 6000 g/mol for the corresponding biodegraded sample. The higher molecular weight in the biotic environment is explained by the assimilation of carboxylic acids and low molecular weight polyethylene chains by microorganisms. Assimilation of the low molecular weight products is further confirmed by the absence of carboxylic acids in the biotic samples. Fewer carbonyls and more double bonds were seen by FTIR in the biodegraded samples, which is in agreement with the biodegradation mechanism of polyethylene.

    Emission of volatiles from polymers - A new approach for understanding polymer degradation2006In: Journal of polymers and the environment, ISSN 1064-7546, E-ISSN 1572-8900, Vol. 14, no 1, p. 8-13Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Emission of low molar mass compounds from different polymeric materials was determined and the results from the volatile analysis were applied to predict the degree of degradation and long-term properties, to determine degradation rates and mechanisms, to differentiate between biotic and abiotic degradation and for quality control work. Solid-phase microextraction and solid-phase extraction together with GC-MS were applied to identify and quantify the low molar mass compounds. Volatiles were released and monitored at early stages of degradation before any matrix changes were observed by e.g. SEC, DSC and tensile testing. The analysis of volatiles can thus also be applied to detect small differences between polymeric materials and their susceptibility to degradation. The formation of certain degradation products correlated with the changes taking place in the polymer matrix, these indicator products could, thus, be analysed to rapidly predict the degree of degradation in the polymer matrix and further to predict the long-term properties and remaining lifetime of the product.

    Controlled synthesis of star-shaped homo- and co-polymers of aliphatic polyesters2006In: 7th International Biorelated Polymers Symposium, 2006, p. 37-38Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The challenges in finding a material with the proper characteristics for a given tissue engineering application are several. One solution is improving the ability to tailor the mechanical and physical properties along with the degradation profile of aliphatic polyesters, by for example alterations in their composition and architecture. In this study, well-defined star-shaped aliphatic polyesters constituted of four arms were synthesized. As a model system, L,L-lactide and a spirocyclic tin initiator was chosen and the affect of the solvent, temperature and monomer-to-initiator ratio on the number average molecular weight, the molecular weight distribution and the conversion of the polymers was shown. Consecutively, we proved that well-defined star-shaped block copolymers composed of 1,5-dioxepan-2-one and L,L-lactide with narrow molecular weight distributions and controlled block lengths can be synthesized using this system.

    Abstract [en]

    An exponential growth has been observed in the last decade where enzymes were used as catalysts for polymerization of different monomers and due to enzyme's origin from natural sources they have been taken as a substitute for the metal-based catalytic systems. Mild polymerization conditions, high enantio- and regio-selectivity and recyclability of enzymes give them an extra edge over the use of organo-metallic catallysts. Though the enzyme-catalyzed polymerizations are environmentally highly advantageous, the high cost, large quantity of enzymes required for polymerization and formation of relatively low molecular weight polymers obstruct their employment in the industry. Due to these reasons, this technique is still at die stage of infancy to generate polymeric materials which can be converted to any useful physical form. In this article enzyme-catalyzed ring-opening polymerization of lactones, lactides, cyclic carbonates and depsipeptides has been reviewed with special focus on the molecular weight of the polymers synthesized hitherto using enzyme catalysis. It is necessary to obtain polymers of sufficient molecular weight from enzyme catalysis to withstand the specific requirements of their end applications if this technique is desired to be escalated to commercial level.

    Abstract [en]

    A new route for the design of renewable hydrogels is presented. The soluble waste from masonite production was isolated, fractionized, and upgraded. The resulting hemicellulose rich fraction was alkenyl-functionalized and used in the preparation of covalently cross-linked hydrogels capable of sustained release of incorporated agents. Said hydrogels showed a Fickian diffusion-based release of incorporated bovine serum albumin. Also, a method for the coating of seeds with hydrogel was developed. The sustained release of incorporated growth retardant agents from the hydrogel coating on rape seeds was shown to enable the temporary inhibition of germination.

    Resilient bioresorbable copolymers based on trimethylene carbonate, L-lactide, and 1,5-dioxepan-2-one2006In: Biomacromolecules, ISSN 1525-7797, E-ISSN 1526-4602, Vol. 7, no 5, p. 1489-1495Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The new combinations of monomers presented in this work were evaluated in order to create an elastic material for potential application in soft tissue engineering. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) of trimethylene carbonate (TMC) with L-lactide (LLA) and 1,5-dioxepan-2-one (DXO) have been synthesized using a cyclic five-membered tin alkoxide initiator. The block copolymers were designed in such a way that poly(trimethylene carbonate-co1,5-dioxepan-2-one) formed an amorphous middle block and the poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) formed semicrystalline terminal blocks. The amorphous middle block consisted of relatively randomly distributed TMC and DXO monomer units, and the defined block structure of the PLLA terminal segments was confirmed by C-13 NMR. The properties of the TMC-DXO-LLA copolymers were compared with those of triblock copolymers based either on LLA-TMC or on LLA-DXO. Differential scanning calorimetry and dynamic mechanical analysis data confirmed the micro-phase separation in the copolymers. The mechanical properties of the copolymers were evaluated using tensile testing and cycling loading. All of the copolymers synthesized showed a highly elastic behavior. The properties of copolymers could be tailored by altering the proportions of the different monomers.

    Fibrillar structure of resorbable microblock copolymers based on 1,5-dioxepan-2-one and epsilon-caprolactone2003In: Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry, ISSN 0887-624X, E-ISSN 1099-0518, Vol. 41, no 15, p. 2412-2423Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The copolymerization of 1,5-dioxepan-2-one (DXO) and E-caprolactone, initiated by a five-membered cyclic tin alkoxide initiator, was performed in chloroform at 60 degreesC. Copolymers with different molar ratios of DXO (25, 40, and 60%) were synthesized and characterized. C-13 NMR spectroscopy of the carbonyl region revealed the formation of copolymers with a blocklike structure. Differential scanning calorimetry measurements showed that all the copolymers had a single glass transition between -57 and -49 degreesC and a melting temperature in the range of 30.1-47.7 degreesC, both of which were correlated with the amount of DXO. An increase in the amount of DXO led to an increase in the glass-transition temperature and to a decrease in the melting temperature. Dynamic mechanical thermal analysis measurements confirmed the results of the calorimetric analysis, showing a single sharp drop in the storage modulus in the temperature region corresponding to the glass transition. Tensile testing demonstrated good mechanical properties with a tensile strength of 27-39 MPa and an elongation at break of up to 1400%. The morphology of the copolymers was examined with polarized optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy; the films that crystallized from the melt showed a short fibrillar structure (with a length of 0.05-0.4 mum) in contrast to the untreated solution-cast films.

    Potential tissue implants from the networks based on 1,5-dioxepan-2-one and epsilon-caprolactone2005In: Polymer journal, ISSN 0032-3896, E-ISSN 1349-0540, Vol. 46, no 18, p. 6746-6755Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The synthesis and characterization of degradable polymeric networks for biomedical applications was performed. Cross-linked films of poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) and poly(1,5-dioxepan-2-one) (PDXO) having various mole fractions of monomers and different cross-link densities were successfully prepared using 2,2'-bis-(epsilon-caprolactone-4-yl) propane (BCP) as cross-linking agent. Reaction parameters were carefully examined to optimise, the film-formin.,, conditions. Networks obtained were elastomeric materials. easy to cast and remove from the mould. Effect of CL content and cross-link density on the final properties of the polymer network was evaluated. High CL content or degree of cross-linking led to increase in Young's modulus and decrease in elongation at break. An increase in crystalline domains in films having a higher CL content was observed by optical microscopy. A greater thermal stability was observed in films having a high CL content. The hydrophilicity of the materials could be tailored by changing the CL content. The surface of the films became rougher with higher CL content.

    Polylactides with "green" plasticizers: Influence of isomer composition2013In: Journal of Applied Polymer Science, ISSN 0021-8995, E-ISSN 1097-4628, Vol. 130, no 4, p. 2962-2970Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Synthesized polylactides (PLA) with different D-isomer contents in the polymer chain were melt-blended with a series of green plasticizers by extrusion. Mechanical and thermal properties as well as the morphology of the plasticized materials were characterized to demonstrate how the combination of PLA with different D-contents and plasticizer controls the material properties. After addition of acetyl tributyl citrate (ATC), the elongation at break for PLA with a low D-isomer content was twice as high as that for PLAs with high D-isomer contents. Similar variations in the plasticization effect on the PLAs were also observed with the other plasticizers used, glyceryl triacetate (GTA), glycerol trihexanoate (GTH) and polyethylene glycol (PEG). In order to continue with the development of renewable polymers in packaging applications, the interrelation between a plasticizer and a specific polymer needs to be understood.

    Tuning the Degradation Profiles of Poly(L-lactide)-Based Materials through Miscibility2014In: Biomacromolecules, ISSN 1525-7797, E-ISSN 1526-4602, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 391-402Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The effective use of biodegradable polymers relies on the ability to control the onset of and time needed for degradation. Preferably, the material properties should be retained throughout the intended time frame, and the material should degrade in a rapid and controlled manner afterward. The degradation profiles of polyester materials were controlled through their miscibility. Systems composed of PLLA blended with poly[(R,S)-3-hydroxybutyrate] (a-PHB) and polypropylene adipate (PPA) with various molar masses were prepared through extrusion. Three different systems were used: miscible (PLLA/a-PHB5 and PLLA/a-PHB20), partially miscible (PLLA/PPA5/comp and PLLA/PPA20/comp), and immiscible (PLLA/PPA5 and PLLA/PPA20) blends. These blends and their respective homopolymers were hydrolytically degraded in water at 37 degrees C for up to I year. The blends exhibited entirely different degradation profiles but showed no diversity between the total degradation times of the materials. PLLA presented a two-stage degradation profile with a rapid decrease in molar mass during the early stages of degradation, similar to the profile of PLLA/a-PHB5. PLLA/a-PHB20 presented a single, constant linear degradation profile. PLLA/PPA5 and PLLA/PPA20 showed completely opposing degradation profiles relative to PLLA, exhibiting a slow initial phase and a rapid decrease after a prolonged degradation time. PLLA/PPA5/comp and PLLA/PPA20/comp had degradation profiles between those of the miscible and the immiscible blends. The molar masses of the materials were approximately the same after 1 year of degradation despite their different profiles. The blend composition and topographical images captured at the last degradation time point demonstrate that the blending component was not leached out during the period of study. The hydrolytic stability of degradable polyester materials can be tailored to obtain different and predetermined degradation profiles for future applications.

    Nano-Stereocomplexation of Polylactide (PLA) Spheres by Spray Droplet Atomization2014In: Macromolecular rapid communications, ISSN 1022-1336, E-ISSN 1521-3927, Vol. 35, no 22, p. 1949-1953Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A direct, efficient, and scalable method to prepare stereocomplexed polylactide (PLA)-based nanoparticles (NPs) is achieved. By an appropriate combination of fabrication parameters, NPs with controlled shape and crystalline morphology are obtained and even pure PLA stereocomplexes (PLASC) are successfully prepared using the spray-drying technology. The formed particles of varying D- and L-LA content have an average size of approximate to 400 nm, where the smallest size is obtained for PLA50, which has an equimolar composition of PLLA and PDLA in solution. Raman spectra of the particles show the typical shifts for PLASC in PLA50, and thermal analysis indicates the presence of pure stereocomplexation, with only one melting peak at 226 degrees C. Topographic images of the particles exhibit a single phase with different surface roughness in correlation with the thermal analysis. A high yield of spherically shaped particles is obtained. The results clearly provide a proficient method for achieving PLASC NPs that are expected to function as renewable materials in PLA-based nanocomposites and potentially as more stable drug delivery carriers.

    Homocomposites of Polylactide (PLA) with Induced Interfacial Stereocomplex Crystallites2015In: ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, ISSN 2168-0485, Vol. 3, no 9, p. 2220-2231Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The demand for “green” degradable composite materials increases with growing environmental awareness. The key challenge is achieving the preferred physical properties and maintaining their eco-attributes in terms of the degradability of the matrix and the filler. Herein, we have designed a series of “green” homocomposites materials based purely on polylactide (PLA) polymers with different structures. Film-extruded homocomposites were prepared by melt-blending PLA matrixes (which had different degrees of crystallinity) with PLLA and PLA stereocomplex (SC) particles. The PLLA and SC particles were spherical and with 300–500 nm size. Interfacial crystalline structures in the form of stereocomplexes were obtained for certain particulate-homocomposite formulations. These SC crystallites were found at the particle/matrix interface when adding PLLA particles to a PLA matrix with d-lactide units, as confirmed by XRD and DSC data analyses. For all homocomposites, the PLLA and SC particles acted as nucleating agents and enhanced the crystallization of the PLA matrixes. The SC particles were more rigid and had a higher Young’s modulus compared with the PLLA particles. The mechanical properties of the homocomposites varied with particle size, rigidity, and the interfacial adhesion between the particles and the matrix. An improved tensile strength in the homocomposites was achieved from the interfacial stereocomplex formation. Hereafter, homocomposites with tunable crystalline arrangements and subsequently physical properties, are promising alternatives in strive for eco-composites and by this, creating materials that are completely degradable and sustainable.
