Synthesis and Characterization of Biodegradable Polyesters Based on Sesame Oil for Biomedical Field
G. S. Prabha Littis Malar | S. Begila David
Abstract: The main objective of this study is to synthesize and characterization of biodegradable polyester elastomers from sesame oil. In this work, co polyesters were obtained by thermal poly condensation technique on the effect of sesame oil-based polyols with non-toxic monomers such as citric acid, 1, 2-ethanediol, 1, 6-hexanediol without addition of catalyst or solvents. The prepared epoxy resin and polyol were characterized using FT-IR and 1H-NMR. Newly synthesized co polyesters were characterized by FT-IR, 1H- NMR, Solubility studies, TG-DTA, SEM analysis and mechanical analysis. These polyesters exhibit wide range of mechanical and degradation profiles along with surface affinities towards many cell types that can be tuned by the choice of monomers.
