Synthesis of waterborne degradable polyester nanoparticles
May 20-25, 2018
Waterborne degradable nanoparticles are of interest for many applications, such as drug delivery, temporary coatings or adhesives. The aim of this project is to achieve degradability of waterborne polymeric adhesive dispersions by introducing polyesters in the polymer particles due to their simple decomposition through hydrolysis. Two approaches were followed to introduce polyesters into the polymer matrix. On the one hand the usage of acrylated oligoesters as macromonomers to form degradable side chains and on the other hand the usage of diacrylated oligoesters as crosslinker for degradability in the crosslinking points of the polymeric network (Figure 1).
