Cryogels and polymeric microcapsules with triggered degradation and release

Tuğba Dışpınar UGent (2012)
abstract
The developments in polymeric systems containing cleavable functional groups attract much attention nowadays and serve to the design of modern materials for a wide range of applications in different disciplines ranging from medicine and biotechnology to the microelectronic industry and to the protection of the environment from plastic waste. This thesis contributes to these developments with two different polymeric systems. More specifically, both cryogels and polymeric capsules have been investigated with a main attention to their on-demand degradation mechanism. The presence of cleavable functional groups in the above mentioned systems gives the advantage of either a triggered degradation or release process in accordance with the final application. In these systems, the degradation or release process can be initiated by manipulating the splitting of the cleavable groups in their structure. In the case of cryogels, the triggered degradation of the cleavable groups causes the solubilization of the crosslinked gel system. The presence of such cleavable groups can also be used to have a spatial control in order to achieve a tailored degradation mechanism. In microcapsules, the same process destroys the microcapsule shell, liberating the encapsulated material.
