A series of waterborne polyurethane (WPU) microemulsions were synthesized through self-emulsification methodology, using toluene-2,6-diisocyanate, polytetramethylene glycol (PTMG), poly-caprolactonediol (PCL), and dimethylol propionic acid (DMPA) as monomers; isophorone diamine (IPDA) as chain extender; and aziridine as cross-linking agent. The...

Mechanically Tunable Curcumin Incorporated Polyurethane Hydrogels as Potential Biomaterials

We report here on the one-pot synthesis and characterization of curcumin incorporated polyethylene glycol-polyurethane (PU-CUR) hydrogels using PEG-4000, 4, 4′-methylenebis (cyclohexyl isocyanate), curcumin in the presence of a cross-linker, 1,2,6 hexanetriol (HT). Besides the physical entrapment, curcumin also provides a partial...
