7.2) are surface patterning and electrospinning, whereas among the 3D configurations microgrooved and porous scaffold can be found (Table 7.2). where fluoroquinolone antimicrobial drugs were incorporated into the polymer as hard-segment monomers [242]. As a medical device or implant, the evaluation of biocompatibility is essential, and good biocompatibility is the minimum requirement for any medical device. The main advantage of this technique is that it does not require harsh chemicals, making it suitable for patterning biologically active layers. Structure and properties of flexible polyurethane foams with nano- and micro-fillers Ivan Javni, Kevin Song, Jie Lin, and Zoran S Petrovic Journal of Cellular Plastics 2011 47 : 4 , 357-372 Structure 18.8. Polyurethanes(PUs)areuniquepolymer materialswith a wide range of physical and chemical properties. With well- designed combinations of monomeric materials, PUs can be tailored to meet diversified demands of various applications such as coatings, adhesives, fibers, thermoplastic elasto- mers, and foams. Furthermore, it is important to consider that vascular integration after in vivo implantation requires a too long time for consenting survival of complex tissues. In their study, human saphenous vein endothelial cells (HSVEC) and a mouse fibroblast cell line (L929) were cultivated with different commercially available polyurethane specimens. Castor oil-derived water-based polyurethane coatings: Structure manipulation for property enhancement. Gong et al. In particular, the gypsum thickness of PLA/MMT-coated marble is c. two times lower with respect to that of the marble treated with pure biopolymer. Table 7.1. Qu prepared a biodegradable block poly (ester-urethane)s based on poly(3-hydroxybutyrateco-4-hydroxybutyrate) copolymers, indicating that crystallinity degree, hydrophobicity, surface free energy and urethane linkage content play important roles in affecting the lactate dehydrogenase activity and hence the platelet adhesion (Qu et al., 2011). Examples of Techniques and Materials Investigated for Skeletal Muscle Regeneration. 2.13). Of course there are also drawbacks: materials handling and heat transfer are more complex for RIM due to the reactive nature of the process, and the materials that can be easily adapted to this process is more limited. The nanocomposite films were prepared by dispersing appropriate amounts of MMT into the cross-linked polyurethane structure in order to obtain durable antigraffiti coatings with high water- and oleo-repellent properties (Carmona-Quiroga et al., 2010; Scheerder et al., 2005). Polyurethanes are synthesized mainly in the form of linear elastomers and soft or rigid foams, but some investigations are focused on the chemically cross-linked polyurethanes. Among the hybrid coatings, bionanocomposites based on poly-l-lactide (PLA) and MMT nanoparticles were successfully employed for the protection of Marmara marble surfaces under acidic atmosphere (Ocak et al., 2015). PMMA/MMT nanocomposites were investigated as potential protective agents from the attack of Sitophilus granarius (L), which is a tiny insect that causes irreversible damage to bread-made objects. Under pressure during injection, these bubbles compress, but then they reexpand in the molded part, compensating for shrinkage. (1996), and Hamza et al. Low pressure pumps drive the recirculation, heat exchangers keep the liquids at a controlled temperature and the mixing head is in a position that keeps the reactants isolated from one another. PLLA, poly-l-lactide acid; PLGA, poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid); PCL, poly(ε-caprolactone); PLCL, poly(l-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone); PANi, polyaniline. The impact of these modifications on the resulting properties is determined by a number of structural and morphological factors. If the cells were uniform in size, the mean cell diameter D¯C would be 1.62 times the mean diameter of sectioned cells D¯S, assuming that sections occur at random positions. Structure of segmented polyurethanes. As an example, the poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) copolymer, PLGA, is one of the most studied materials in SMR, due to the no-toxic degradation products and a favorable interaction with cells (e.g., adhesion, proliferation, and new tissue formation) [15,38]. The diagram shows the main components and circulation pattern. The structure - property relationships in polyurethanes (PU) have been excellently presented in the general monographs on PU [1-11]. Skeletal muscle tissue engineering: methods to form skeletal myotubes and their applications. It is not possible to directly estimate the relative volume of polymer in the cell faces RF, since individual faces vary in thickness, and high magnification images are required to measure the face thickness. In fact, compared to natural polymers, synthetic polymers offer several advantages such as their ability to display mechanical and structural properties that are precisely tunable to the specific application. For that reason, engineered microvasculature could enable in vivo integration of the construct. Other materials are added to aid processing the polymer or to modify the properties of the polymer. The properties of segmented polyurethanes depend on their structure, which is quite complicated. As an example, aliphatic poly(ester urethane)s containing random 50/50 ɛ-caprolactone/l-lactide copolymer segments, 1,4-butanediol and 1,4-butanediisocyanate were synthesized and used to prepare porous structures for meniscus reconstruction [246]. Particularly, antigraffiti tests were conducted on Lecce stone (LS), which is a fossiliferous biocalcarenite widely used by architects and sculptors during the Baroque period. The treatment of clean marbles was conducted by dip coating. It was observed that the coating generates a significant reduction of the gypsum crust thickness highlighting that PLA-based films are proper agents for the marble surface protection. Synthetic materials considered for SMR applications are processed in many configurations; in particular, 2D and 3D configurations can be one of the criterions for the classification of the fabrication techniques. The urethane bond is essentially nondegradable under physiological conditions. Finally, they concluded that commercially available polyurethanes provided an unfavorable support for colonization of patient-derived HSVEC, which demanded a surface modification. 4.2). Figure 2.16 shows features that should be considered: Figure 2.16. To this end, key structure–property relationships of biodegradable polyurethanes are discussed. What is urethane catalyst? A study of the effect of crosslinking agents on the structure and properties of the millable polyurethane (PU) elastomer is reported here. Polyurethane routinely outperforms plastic, rubber and steel in its overall ability to resist harsh environmental factors such as abrasion, … Tissue Eng B Rev 2014;20(5):403–36. Topics include polyurethanes in analytical chemistry applications from sorbent foams to conductive materials and sensors; biomedical polyurethane-based materials and blocked polyurethanes … In addition to the properties required for the biomaterial, perfusable microvessels are needed to sustain oxygen and nutrient supplies so as to prevent cell death at the core of the construct during in vitro culture and in vivo early stages after implantation. A variety of biomaterials are investigated for the fabrication of scaffolds serving as synthetic ECM, to provide an adequate substrate for cell population's colonization and tissue regeneration. Many research groups have studied the influence of grooves on the surface of different materials, including natural and synthetic polymers, such as agarose, methacrylate gelatin, PDMS, PU, PCL, and PLGA. Among the many variations are polyurethanes with properties tailored for automotive applications, such as bumpers, and others that are molded with a foaming agent to create rigid or flexible foams. But, the similarities stop there. Polyurethanes contain a urethane moiety in their repeating unit and were first produced by Bayer in 1937. View chapter Purchase … The mean diameter of sectioned cells is close to 300 µm for all the foams. Table 2.1. A wonderfully bizarre polyurethane is spandex. TPU provides a large number of physical and chemical property combinations for the most demanding applications such as automotive, wires and cables, breathable films for leisure, sports and textile … Reactive injection molding schematic diagram. According to literature (Ocak et al., 2009), the gypsum crust thickness was estimated by the sulfate concentration. The hard and soft phases are shown, which determine the properties of the bulk material. T.J. Touchet, E.M. Cosgriff-Hernandez, in Advances in Polyurethane Biomaterials, 2016. The good thermal insulating properties of rigid polyurethane foams result from the combination of a fine, closed-cell foam structure and cell gases that resist heat … The biocompatibility of polyurethane has been extensively investigated by researchers, which includes the evaluation of in vitro (cell compatibility, toxicity, mutagenicity, as well as additional in vitro tests for a specific application, which will guarantee the function and innocuousness of the device) and in vivo tests. The much denser Pudgee foam has a different microstructure in which the bubbles maintain their spherical shape. (1988). As general result, the LS coating with Fluorolink P56–based films generated a significant reduction of the water vapor permeability. Journal of Macromolecular Science, Part B 2011, 50 (12) , 2290-2306. Biocompatibility, by definition, is the extent to which a foreign, usually implanted, material elicits an immune or other response in a recipient and the ability to co-exist with living organisms without harming them (McGraw-Hill Concise Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 2002). Development of viscosity and elasticity during the molding cycle with the filling complete (tfill) while the viscosity is still low and debonding (tdebond) after the material has developed a sufficiently high modulus. Many processing technologies allow for the fabrication of scaffolds with the features requested for SMR (e.g., strict control of structural, physico-chemical, and mechanical properties, Tables 7.1 and 7.2). British Vita (Kay Metzeler, Ashton-under-Lyne) is a major UK source of such remoulded (or ‘chip’) PU foam. Pereira et al. The coated samples did not show any color changes. Besides them, elastomeric polymers (e.g., polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), polyurethane) have been investigated most of all for their ability to undergo repeated stretch and recovery cycles without failure [23]. (A) Image of an electrospinning apparatus and (B) example of a collector for nanofibers alignment. We use cookies to help provide and enhance our service and tailor content and ads. Cell parameters for some slow-recovery PU foams. The resulting polymers are segmented block copolymers with the polyol providing a low glass transition temperature (i.e., <25°C) soft segment and the diisocyanate component, often combined with a hydrocarbon chain extender, providing the hard segment (Structure 18.8). Most synthetic scaffolds used for SMR are fabricated from polyesters, such as poly(glycolic acid) (PGA), poly(lactide acid) (PLA), or combinations (blends or copolymers) between them or with other polyesters (e.g., poly(ε-caprolactone), PCL). The slabstock process for PU flexible open-cell foam produces some scrap, which is diced into pieces of 5–10 mm diameter. A wide range of physical and mechanical properties have been realized with commercial polyurethanes. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the properties, structure and applications of polyurethane. The superior properties make them suitable for a wide range of applications. Hager et al. 7.5) [55]. In these polymers the biodegradation mechanism involves the hydrolytic cleavage of the ester bonds in the ɛ-caprolactone/l-lactide copolymer segments to form low molecular weight blocks of the nondegradable hard segments, which are ultimately excreted from the body via the liver and/or kidney. Wolfe (1982) attributed high resilience to thick cell edges, and a proportion of closed cells in PU foams. Although natural polymers are selected and investigated in the design of substrates for SMR (Table 7.1), the use of synthetic polymers can be helpful. The design of biodegradable polyurethanes has required alternative diisocyanate compounds since traditional aromatic diisocyanates are toxic and suspected carcinogens. The sheet normal direction is vertical (Fitzgerald et al., 2004). However PU foams have a range of cell sizes, and the relationship between R and the mean values of bmin and L is not known. Subsequent studies, as reviewed by Santerre et al., have clarified much about the behavior of polyurethanes in biological systems [242]. Two series of segmented polyurethanes, one containing 50% soft segments and the other with 70% soft segments were synthesized. NJ Mills, in Polymer Foams Handbook, 2007. Urethan is mainly used in the production of amino resins, but is also used in the manufacture of pesticides, fumigants, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. The effect of the degree of crosslinking on properties … Dawei Zhang, Yanju Liu, Kai Yu, Jinsong Leng. Intended as nonbiodegradable coatings, polyurethanes fell out of favor with the failure of pacemaker leads and breast implant coatings. Lastly, reactions are temperature sensitive so choosing the mold temperature is important to the curing process as well as the demolding. The highly tunable mechanical and physicochemical properties of biodegradable polyurethanes make them promising candidates in the rapidly growing market of resorbable devices. Polyurethanes (PUR) are one of the largest classes of polymers with properties that can be tailored over a wide range for a large number of application. 7.2. The next paragraphs highlight the main features of these techniques. This innovation led to the design of drug polymers (trade name: Epidel) that release the drug when degraded by enzymes generated by an inflammatory response. In fact, cell fate is influenced by surface features and numerous studies have focused on the effects of different topographical features (size and geometry) on the cell response [12,19]. Figure 3.72. In particular, some studies are focused on the effects of different topographical features, such as size and geometry, on cell behavior [8]. By varying the nature of these components, we can create numerous formulas and combinations of properties. Polyurethanes (PUs) are a versatile class of polymers in both synthesis and applications. Capillary force lithography (CFL) and solvent-assisted CFL can be also used for the fabrication of nanopatterned substrates [45,56,57]. On the contrary, the surface of the treated marbles rarely presents some small gypsum crystals. The microstructure, with pre-bent cell edges, provides a more-linear compressive stress–strain response than virgin PU foam. Rigid polyurethane foam is an essential and cost-effective material that can be used for meeting required energy ratings in consumer refrigerators and freezers. Blends and Interpenetrating Polymer Networks. These other polymers are also formed by a two-part reaction in the RIM process. (1990) attributed the more-linear IFD vs. deflection graphs of Union Carbide Ultracell foams to a range of cell sizes, hence a range of cell strengths, so the foam structure collapses progressively. Thus, this shortcoming, together with the low thickness of the substrates (some millimeters), limits their use to patches, where cells can only proliferate at the surface, instead of allowing cell infiltration into a 3D structure. Kamila Mizera, Joanna Ryszkowska. Since by use of stochastic porogen methods (e.g., thermally induced phase separation, solvent casting/particulate leaching), random porous structures are produced with low pore interconnection and high batch-to-batch variation, inverse opal scaffolds can be considered as they allow for a well-ordered structure, uniform pores, and high reproducibility among the production batches [59,60]. Their structures usually feature linearly segmented block copolymers that are made up of soft and hard segments. The variation in the mechanical properties of 100 mm cube samples with position in the block was ±5%, since each sample contains a large number of chips. There is also some closed cell material, part of the extra PU used to bond the chips together. (a) Interference pattern from a flexible PU foam cell face with light of wave length 700 nm and (b) thickness contours of the face. Reaction begins as soon as the reactants come into contact and therefore viscosity begins to climb. Progress in Organic Coatings 2019, 133, 198-205. Based on these techniques, soft lithography allows structuring different polymeric materials using a PDMS master or directly pouring and solvent-evaporating the polymeric solution onto the silicon wafer (Fig. Polyurethanes have been used in biomedical applications since the 1960s, particularly as a blood-contacting material in cardiovascular devices [240,241]. This is because chemically bound hard and soft segment structures act together [ 21 – 23 ] to affect degree of phase separation, crystallization, … Nanocomposites based on montmorillonite (MMT) nanoparticles and a fluorinated polyurethane (Fluorolink P56) were investigated as antigraffiti coatings for highly porous stones (Licchelli et al., 2014). After the first cycle, the overall chromatic variations (ΔE ∼ 2) for both pristine Fluorolink P56 and nanocomposites evidenced a good antigraffiti action for all the investigated films. For SMR, one of the most important features of electrospinning is the fiber alignment control. The results showed that after 45–60 days from the operation, limbs with polyurethane nerve guides showed the same behavior as intact limbs (full recovery), and that the recovery process started to be evident from the 15th day.

Touchet, E.M. Cosgriff-Hernandez, in, Principles of Tissue Engineering (Fifth Edition), . Adapted from Ostrovidov S, Hosseini V, Ahadian S, Fujie T, Parthiban SP, Ramalingam M, et al. DOI: 10.1016/j.porgcoat.2019.04.030. These polymers have a typical segment structure specific to PU elastomers. With the mold filled, the mixhead closes and the system reverts to recirculation, while the material in the mold cures. Urethane acrylate | C6H11NO4 | CID 21863578 - structure, chemical names, physical and chemical properties, classification, patents, … Figure 2.15. The chapter gives an introduction to the polyurethane (PU) polymer, its synthesis and its structure. Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) is a melt-processable thermoplastic elastomer with high durability and flexibility. These values are comparable, so the foam density differences are mainly due to variation in the vertex content. See Figure 3.73. 7.5. Biodegradable polymers are made from biocompatible diisocyanates, such as lysine-diisocyanate or hexamethylene diisocyanate, that release nontoxic degradation products. Polyurethanes (PUs) are characterized by excellent properties such as good resistance to abrasion and good oil and atmospheric resistance. As further new kinds of polyurethane are being developed, it is important to expand our understanding on the relationship between the, Lyman et al., 1975; Picha and Gibbons, 1978, Lelah et al., 1985; Takahara et al., 1985, Guo et al., 2010; Hsu et al., 2010; Tseng et al., 2011, Bio-Instructive Scaffolds for Muscle Regeneration, Bio-Instructive Scaffolds for Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, International Journal of Solids and Structures, PDMS for micromolds gel: fibrinogen and collagen I, Solvent-assisted capillary force lithography (CFL). Based on the above examples, we can see that some polyurethanes present very good in vivo biocompatibility. Where the section passes through a hole in face, the hole is filled in to complete the cell perimeter. 7.4B), wire drum collector, patterned electrodes, or postprocessing methods can be used to obtain aligned fibers so to mimic the anisotropic structural organization of myofibers and provide important cues for morphogenesis (e.g., myotubes formation, muscle cell alignment). 7.3) or stencil micropatterning are under investigation for surface assembling of proteins in order to guide cell behavior. They can be fibers, and they can be adhesives. The low viscosity reactant mixtures do not require high pressure for mold filling and therefore the strength requirements for the molds are lower, the clamping units are smaller, and large parts are more easily achieved. PCL, another FDA-approved biodegradable polyester, is considered as well for fabricating scaffolds for SMR (Table 7.2). These polymers are an example of a “smart” system in that antibacterial agents are released only when inflammation is present. The basic role of a biomaterial used for SMR is to mimic the native environment and, in combination with cells, form a local niche that can generate a functional tissue. The various categories of flexible, low-density PU foams differ in microstructure. With increasing number of cycles, the protective effectiveness of the pure polymer is significantly reduced as demonstrated by the enhancement of the ΔE value, which is close to 10 at the end of the test. Figure 2.13. (1997), while X-ray CT determinations of cell diameter and edge length distributions were described in Chapter 1. Structure and Shape Memory Properties of Polyurethane Copolymers Having Urethane Chains as Soft Segments. The protection efficiency of the biofilms was estimated by measuring the amount of gypsum formed on the marble samples after their exposure to SO2 and water vapor in a reaction chamber. For example, CFL nanopatterns can be obtained with a great variety of topography, geometry, and thickness with a high reproducibility. Scaffolds produced by electrospinning are widely investigated for tissue engineering applications due to the ability of this technique to process various polymers (both synthetic and natural) into fibers, control fiber size and orientation, and mimic the size scale of natural extracellular matrix (ECM) fibers [53]. To this end, key structure–property relationships of biodegradable polyurethanes are discussed. The most common material molded by RIM is polyurethane. 2.14), making the foams less resistant to fatigue. Thermal properties of polyurethane elastomers from soybean oil-based polyol with a … Fig. The mold clamping unit is not show. Of course, polyurethanes are called polyurethanes because in their backbones they have a urethane linkage. Polyurethane is formed by a reaction between an isocyanate and a polyol. The features that affect air flow are the size and number of holes in cell faces, their orientation and spacing, and the cell size. As a consequence, this chapter will not be very long and it will present only the specific general effects of the oligo-polyol s structure on the resulting polyurethane properties. In addition, the processing technique can affect the PU structure and surface properties, as well as the behavior of myoblasts cultured onto the PU scaffold. Recently, MMT nanoparticles were filled into a poly-methyl-methacrylate (PMMA) matrix with the aim to fabricate hybrid coatings for bread-made museum collections (Cozzolino et al., 2017), which represent a peculiar type of artwork in Sardinia (Italy). The microstructure of HR foams (Kleiner et al., 1984) contains a range of cell sizes (Fig. These polymers are typically produced through the reaction of a diisocyanate with a polyol. They just pop up everywhere. Once healing occurs, the enzyme level drops and the release of drug diminishes. Polyurethane structure and properties can be tuned by selection of the specific chemistries of the reactants as well as additives. In addition, PCL copolymers with PGA and PLA were investigated to better control scaffold degradation and mechanical properties (Table 7.2). Furthermore, if only the longer edges in the PU structure are measured, the average b/L ratio will be overestimated. Although various techniques have been developed to improve the biocompatibility of polyurethane and very exciting in vitro results have been acquired, it is the in vivo measurements that predominate. The possibility of using the microcontact printing technique on a flexible polymeric surface is of great interest for skeletal or cardiac muscle tissue engineering. (2010) synthesized a photopolymerizable and injectable polyurethane for biomedical applications, by employing minimally invasive procedures, the obtained injectable polymer systems could be molded in situ before photo-polymerization with visible light. RIM is also used to mold other polymers, including nylon (polyamide), epoxy and polyester. (2005) measured the edge width variation in a PU foam (Fig. And, this liquid is not a simple melt. Phase separation … Scale bar is 1 mm. However, studies aimed at providing a microvasculature to the scaffolds will not be described herein. In contrast the cells in conventional foams have a narrow cell and diameter distribution, consequently all the cells collapse in compression within a narrow load range (see Chapter 5). The cytotoxic effect was evaluated by morphology, cell viability, cell growth kinetics and proliferation tests. An interesting application of polyurethanes was developed by Santerre et al. Lorraine F. Francis, in Materials Processing, 2016. In particular, when PDMS is used, plasma treatment and surface coating (e.g., with gelatin) are looked-for to promote cell adhesion and proliferation. Elucidation of the biodegradation mechanism and its dependence on the, Giuseppe Cavallaro, ... Stefana Milioto, in, Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials for Diagnostic, Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, ). Even though electrospun aligned fibers can influence cell behavior via contact guidance, literature [23,54] reports that cells could be unable to infiltrate the electrospun mats due to their close packing density. There are two reactant tanks, the contents of which recirculate through the system. Its degradation rate is much slower than that of PLA copolymers and PGA, in the order of months to years depending on the scaffold configuration (e.g., porous, nanofibers). The diameter of the equivalent circle (the circle with the same included area) was computed for each cell (or hole). Among them, soft lithography is used to structure the surface. Soft and hard segments or soft segments are alternately arranged, such as electrospinning require harsh chemicals making. That it does not require harsh chemicals, making it suitable for a wide range of physical and mechanical (! Il3 kgm−3 from a judo mat ( Mills, 2003 ) white scale is!
