RESEARCH ARTICLE

Thermal degradation behavior and kinetics of porous polymer based on high functionality components

  •  20 February 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Two kinds of porous polymer were prepared based on high functionality components. Thermogravimetric analysis is used to compare the thermal degradation behavior and kinetics of these two materials. The thermal degradation characteristics of rigid polyurethane foam and polyurea aerogel were obtained. The apparent activation energy of thermal degradation of the porous polymer was investigated by model-free methods.

RESEARCH ARTICLE

Hydroxypropyl methacrylate stars as versatile carriers of therapeutic agents

  •  20 February 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Star-shaped nanostructures of poly(hydroxy propyl methacrylate)/poly(oligoethylene glycol methacrylate) (PHPMA/POEGMA) loaded with 10 wt% rhodamine B, resveratrol, and curcumin were investigated in phosphate buffer saline as potential nanocarriers. All carriers exhibited small particle sizes, excellent stability, and diverse drug-release characteristics that highlight the versatility of PHPMA/POEGMA stars as nanocarriers for therapeutic agents.
