Hydrophilic polyphosphazenes as hydrogels: radiation cross-linking and hydrogel characteristics of poly[bis(methoxyethoxyethoxy)phosphazene


, : Hydrophilic polyphosphazenes as hydrogels: radiation cross-linking and hydrogel characteristics of poly[bis(methoxyethoxyethoxy)phosphazene. Biomaterials 9(6): 509-513

The water-soluble polyphosphazene, [NP(OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OCH3)2]n, cross-links when exposed to gamma rays to form hydrophilic, water-swellable membranes and hydrogels. The degree of cross-linking increases with irradiation dose in a manner that can be utilized to change the properties. gamma irradiation studies of the small molecule model compound, [NP(OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OCH3)2]4, were also carried out to probe the relationship between irradiation dose and cross-link density.

The total concentrations of Na, Mg, P, K, Ca, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, Se and Mo in soyabean flour and in an extract of soyabean flour were determined by ICP-AES and ICP-MS. The highest element extractability was found for K (66 +or- 7%) and Ni (66...

Continuous intravenous infusion of deltamethrin at 1 mg per minute (dissolved in glycerol-formol) produced anxiety, salivation and nystagmus after 0.3-0.9 mg/kg had been given, indicating an effect on nerve centres. After injection of 1-2 mg/kg, c...
