Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Ice crystal formation behavior in biocompatible polymer was measured by simultaneous measuring instrument for XRD and DSC(XRD-DSC). Biocompatible polymer poly(2-methoxyethyl acrylate, PMEA) with saturated water showed exothermic DSC peak and hexagonal ice crystal XRD patterns at around -35°C. Whereas such behavior was not observed in not biocompatible polymer poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate). Such weakly interacted water with polymer materials as observed in PMEA has important role in biocompatibility.
