Bioresorbable or biocompatible polymers
Bioresorbable polymers can be tailored for controlled degradation through numerous functional groups. They can be used for sutures, drug delivery and tissue engineering.
 
EPOXIDES LACTIDES
Polyisosorbide diglycidyl ether : Bisphenol A substitute1



Ref : SP-9S-5-001
PMMA-co-PLA (diblock)



Ref : SP-4P-0-004
FUMARICS ACRYLICS
Polydiisopropyl fumarate2



Ref : SP-9P-0-001
Poly(alpha-acetoxy ethyl acrylate)

Diblock copolymers for drug delivery
Nowadays, targeted and controlled release of drugs is subjected to many researches. Polymeric materials intended for this application need to combine different properties.
Amphiphilic and double hydrophilic copolymers enable the formation of micelles for drug entrapment, whereas stimuli-responsive polymers permit a controlled delivery of drug3.
DIBLOCK AMPHIPHILIC COPOLYMERS
PAA-co-PLA4



Ref : SP-4P-0-007
PEO-co-PDMS



Ref : SP-8P-3-001
DIBLOCK HYDROPHILIC COPOLYMERS DIBLOCK THERMORESPONSIVE COPOLYMERS
PEO-co-Polyglutamic Acid 



Ref : SP-1P-0-001
 
PNIPAM-co-PLA



Ref : SP-3P-0-006
 
 
 
Dental and implant materials
Dental and implant materials need to possess excellent mechanical and adhesion performances associated with biostability. Building blocks and polymers containing phosphonic acid functions are especially dedicated to this application, because of their ability in binding to bones and various calcium phosphates5.
ACRYLICS
MAPC1 Acid



Ref : SP-41-007
MMA-co-MAPC1 Acid



Ref : SP-4P-1-003
STYRENICS ALLYLICS
Styrene-co-Styphos Acid

Polymers for ophthalmology
 Polymers and copolymers used in ophthalmologic applications, especially for producing contact lenses, combine specific features: hydrophilicity, oxygen permeability and abilities in forming hydrogel structures via functional groups6.
HYDROXYETHYL METHACRYLATE "HEMA" BASED POLYMERS
HEMA Homopolymer



Ref : SP-4P-3-004
MMA-co-HEMA
