Kicking the new year off with our latest paper on unsaturated poly(ester-urethanes) with stereochemically dependent thermomechanical properties with @MLBeckerGroup from Connor Stubbs, @JoshWorchPhD and @Pryddeh2. Head over to https://bit.ly/2MXT1qL to find out more!

Through the use of multiple carbonate monomers, the team were able to tune the mechanical properties of the structures, including degradation rate
The inks are based on aliphatic polycarbonates, which, unlike other polycarbonates, don’t have aromatic groups between carbonate linkages to increase flexibility
