Polylactide Copolymers

Copolymerization of Lactide with other monomers and polymers to get various
polymeric architectures is explored widely during the last decade to get biopolymers
with interesting properties.

Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) copolymers
Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) is a biodegradable
polyester, that has been extensively used in various
biomedical applications due to its excellent
biocompatibility. Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) copolymers
are extensively used in drug delivery systems, sutures,
and orthopaedic fixation devices such as pins, rods and
Screws. Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) and the respective
homopolymers.. more..
