目前有许多可降解的聚合物在使用中。聚ε-caprolactone)(PCL)被发现是一种脂肪族聚酯已被发现是有用的假肢,缝合,也在许多的药物供应。该化合物的IUPAC名称为(1,7)-polyocepan-2- 1。化合物的另一个名称是2-羟戊烷和6-己内酯聚合物。这个化合物的CAS号是24980-41-4。化合物的常用缩写是PCL。化合物的密度是1.145克/厘米^ 3。化合物的熔点是60摄氏度。它们被发现存在于25摄氏度的标准状态。这种化合物在20世纪70年代和80年代很有名，但它在当今时代已经被发现。由于这些化合物的生物材料应用，它最近在当今时代获得了显著的地位。它们被发现是相对便宜的产品，被发现具有可降解的动力学，适合特定的解剖部位。这使得这种化合物的使用更加可行和广泛。该化合物的流变学被发现具有广泛的生物材料用途。流变学研究是研究液体或软态物质的流动。塑性流动是根据对作用力的响应弹性而变形的。当与挤压淀粉反应时，发现化合物的流变行为是明显的。这是在离线毛细管流变仪中观察到的情况。发现该化合物的电源线模型具有适当的校正因子。淀粉含量的一致性系数K显著提高。研究发现，淀粉- pcl纳米复合共混物具有剪切稀释特性。这被发现比100%的PCL具有更高的伪可塑性。化合物的粘度被发现高于PCL复合材料。
There are a number of biodegradable polymers that are in use in the current times. Poly (ε-caprolactone) (PCL) is found to be an aliphatic polyester which has been found to be useful in the prosthetic, suture and also in many of the drug deliveries . The IUPAC name for the compound is (1,7)-polyocepan-2-one. The other names for the compounds are 2-oxepenane homo polymer and 6-Caprolactone polymer . The CAS number for this compound is 24980-41-4. The common abbreviation for the compound is PCL. The density of the compound is 1.145 g/Cm^3. The melting point of the compound is 60 Degree Celsius. They are found to exist at the standard state of 25 Degree Celsius. This compound was famous in the 1970s and 1980s but it has been found the compounds in the current times. It has recently gained prominence in the current times owing to the biomaterial applications of these compounds . They have been found to be relatively inexpensive products that are found to have degradable kinetics to suit specific anatomical sites . This makes this compound feasible and widely in use. Rheology of the compound is found to have wide variety of uses as biomaterial . The rheological study is the study of the flow of the mater in the liquid or the soft state. The plastic flow is found to be deforming based on the elasticity in the response to the applied force . The rheological behavior of the compounds was found to be pronounced when reacted with the extruded starch. This was found to be the case when observed in the off-line capillary rheometer. The power line model for the compounds was found to have appropriate correction factors. The consistency coefficient K for the starch was found to be significantly higher. The Starch-PCL Nano composite blends were found to have shear-thinning behavior. This was found to have higher pseudo plasticity than did 100% PCL. The viscosity of the compounds was found to be higher than the PCL composite.
