Prof. ILDOO CHUNG, Pusan National University, Republic of Korea

Biodegradable Nanoporous Microspheres by RAFT and UV Irradiation

Abstract: Nanoporous microspheres based on polycaprolactone (PCL), polylactide (PLA) and photodegradable poly(methyl vinyl ketone) (PMVK) were synthesized and characterized. In this study, biodegradable triblock copolymers were first synthesized by ring opening polymerization of lactide followed by RAFT polymerization of methyl vinyl ketone (MVK), and then used to fabricate microsphere by emulsion method. In order to polymerize by RAFT method, macro-CTA (chain transfer agent) was synthesized by reacting carboxylic acid-terminated CTA, S-1-dodecyl-S’-(α,α’-dimethyl-α’’-acetic acid) trithiocarbonate (DDMAT) with hydroxyl terminated PLA-PCL-PLA triblock copolymer, and then used for the synthesis of block copolymer with methyl vinyl ketone (MVK). The synthesized block copolymers were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR spectroscopies. Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) was used to evaluate molecular weight and molecular weight distribution and monitor photodegradabilities of block copolymers. The morphology of microparticles before and after UV irradiation confirmed by SEM and TEM images showed that spherical microspheres before UV irradiation were changed to disk-shaped microparticles, owing to collapsing of PMVK moieties by UV irradiation.

Bio: Dr. Ildoo Chung is currently the professor and department head of Department of Polymer Science and Engineering at Pusan National University, Korea. After he received his Ph. D. degree at Pusan National University in 2000, he completed his postdoctoral training in Department of Chemistry at University of Tennessee, and in Department of Biomedical Engineering at University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA. He is now serving editor-in-chief of Journal of Adhesion and Interface, and member of board of directors in the Polymer Society of Korea, the Korea Society of Adhesion and Interface, Korea Polyurethane Society, and Asian Cyclodextrin Conference. From 2012 to 2013, he was in Department of Chemistry at University of Tennessee as a visiting associate professor. He had over 70 peer-reviewed publications and over 230 presentations in national and international conferences. His research interests are focused on advanced polymeric biomaterials such as drug delivery system, hard/soft tissue compatible polymers, photocurable 3D printing polymer, biodegradable polymer and composite system.
