Synthesis, Characterization and Properties of Polyesteramides Based on ε-Caprolactone and 6-Aminocaproic Acid
Biodegradable aliphatic polyesteramides were synthesized from ε-caprolactone and 6-aminocaproic acid by melt-polycondensation method. FTIR, 1H-NMR, DSC, WAXD, TG, and tensile testing were used to characterize the polyesteramides. With the increase in 6-aminocaproic acid content, the melting temperature, thermal degradation temperature and tensile strength at break increased accordingly. The ester bond decomposes at lower temperature, and then the amide bond decomposes at higher temperature.
