Early clinical applications of polymers in this family were for sutures. The glycolic acid/lactic acid polymers have also been widely applied for controlled release of drugs and proteins. Professor Robert Langer’s group was the leader in developing these polymers in the form of porous scaffolds for tissue engineering (Langer and Vacanti, 1993). Hydroxyapatite Hydroxyapatite is one of the most widely studied materials for healing in bone. , a material of ancient history) and a synthetic material with a modern history.

This innovation led to the soft contact lens industry and to the modern field of biomedical hydrogels as we know them today. 5. Important early applications included acrylamide gels for electrophoresis, poly(vinyl alcohol) porous sponges (Ivalon) as implants, many hydrogel formulations as soft contact lenses, and alginate gels for cell encapsulation. Poly(ethylene glycol) Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), also called poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) in its high-molecular-weight form, can be categorized as a hydrogel, especially when the chains are cross-linked.

For a valid determination of fracture properties, failure must also occur in this reduced section and not in the grips. 2 29 BULK PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS and cyclic testing in a standard mechanical testing machine. To do so, Hooke’s law is rearranged as follows: Cross head E= σ . ε (3) Load cell Brittle Fracture Drive screw In real materials, elastic behavior does not persist indefinitely. If nothing else intervenes, microscopic defects, which are present in all real materials, will eventually begin to grow rapidly under the influence of the applied tensile or shear stress, and the specimen will fail suddenly by brittle fracture.
