Abstract

Miscible or partially miscible blends of crosslinked-PEGDMA and PLA were prepared using a unique combination of mixing and photo-polymerization processes. Through careful selection of components and the control of processing conditions, the properties of the blends, such as DC, mechanical properties, and cell adhesion, can be modified and enhanced compared to crosslinked-PEGDMA alone. PEGDMA/PLA blends, as a prototype model system, represent a novel class of biomaterials with a wide spectrum of properties.
