Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert's dissertation details his innovative work summarized below: • Created a method of solvent selection to make a porous xerogel (solution gelation chemistry). Demonstrated the method on two different sol-gel polymer formulations. • Created a shape-memory characterization method for porous polymers. • Specified, designed, built and used a simple, shape-memory, compression test fixture which provides: compression to 50 N; samples to 10 cm diameter and 3 cm high; temperature resistant to 350°C; accuracy to 0.5 mm. • Created and characterized shape memory, porous, biocompatible, degradable, block copolyurethanes with the goal of providing tissue engineering scaffolds for regenerative medicine.
