Abstract

We report the synthesis and characterisation of an extended series of biodegradable cycloaliphatic polyesters for medical purposes. These polymers are based on cis- and trans-1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxylic acid, cis- and trans-1,4-cyclohexanediol and straight chain aliphatic diols and diacids with different chain lengths. The results demonstrate the possibility of controlling polymer morphology through the cis/trans composition of the 1,4-cyclohexane moiety. The trans isomer increases the regularity of the polymer chain and hence modifies the crystalline morphology, the most obvious indication of which is an increase in melting point.
