Abstract

A library of tyrosine-derived polycarbonates of have been developed that share a structurally identical backbone with a rich chemical and structural diversity, which depend solely on the pendent ester substituent (Scheme 1).1 The physical and chemical nature of the pendant group significantly affects the mechanical properties, degradation rates, and cellular responses of each polymer.2 This research will explore the effect of discrete blends of the tyrosine-derived polycarbonates in tissue engineering scaffolds by investigating materials properties and cellular interactions.
