This paper is the first report of electrospinning neat polyisobutylene-based thermoplastic elastomers. Two generations of these materials are investigated: a linear poly(styrene-b-isobutylene-b-styrene) (L_SIBS) triblock copolymer and a dendritic poly(isobutylene-b-p-methylstyrene) (D_IB-MS), also a candidate for biomedical applications. Cross-polarized optical microscopy shows...

Long term in vitro biostability of thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) containing mixed polyisobutylene (PIB)/poly(tetramethylene oxide) (PTMO) soft segment was studied under accelerated conditions in 20% H(2)O(2) solution containing 0.1M CoCl(2) at 50 °C to predict resistance to metal ion oxidative degradation...

The surface properties and biocompatibility of a class of thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) with applications in blood-contacting medical devices have been studied. Thin films of commercial TPUs and novel polyisobutylene (PIB)-poly(tetramethylene oxide) (PTMO) TPUs were characterized by contact angle measurements, X-ray...

We present results of in situ measurements of the filling process of polymer melts in nanopores. After accurate characterization of the empty nanopores, they are filled with the hydrophobic polyisobutylene and the hydrophilic poly-epsilon-caprolactone. The filling process is investigated in...
