MiniProject 3

I worked with Dr. Andrew Dove from the Department of Chemistry. The project was concerned with the characterisation of cyclic ketene acetals reactions with alcohol radicals. The reaction ocurs readily under acidic conditions but is serverly retarded under basic conditions. It has been shown that the ester links formed by the reaction are biodegradable and therefore offer a possible material for a microstereolithography resin for designing tissue engineering scaffolds.
