extensively used in biomedical applications. In this direction, poly(caprolactone) (PCL) is one of the most promising polymers, and it can be used in many medical applications, such as drug delivery, scaffolds, and guided bone regeneration [ 14 ]. PCL has been

Materials Poly(∊-caprolactone) (PCL) was obtained from Solvay Caprolactones (presently Perstorp Caprolactones, UK) and is commercialized under the trade name CAPA®6500 ( M n = 47.500 g mol −1 and M w = 84.500 g mol −1 , according to the

about polymer blends containing one crystallizable component and a thermosetting component [ 9 ]. In previous articles, the miscibility of the systems formed by linear UP resin and poly(∊-caprolactone) (PCL) [ 10 – 13 ] were studied. For the

The soft segment crystallinity and morphology of poly(ester-urethanes) (PEUs) based on poly(&-caprolactone) (PCL) as a soft segment and an aliphatic diisocyanate in the hard segment were studied. It was found that the restriction of the crystallization of the PCL soft segment depends on the hard segment concentration, the length of the soft segment, and the total molecular mass of the PEUs. The PEU based on a low molecular mass PCL (M=2000) is an amorphous elastic material during a long time after casting from solution or after melt crystallization. A soft-hard segment endothermal mixing transition (Tmix) of about 70-80C is observed in the DSC curves of this PEU sample.
