Protein release from PEG hydrogels that are similar to ideal Flory-Rehner networks

A new crosslinking scheme for producing polyethylene glycol hydrogels is described, involving a conjugate addn. reaction between PEG-multiacrylate and PEG-dithiol. Albumin was released from the gels with zero-order kinetics over four days. The gels are amenable to math. description, and the swelling of the gels is modeled by the Flory-Rehner and Peppas-Merrill equations. [on SciFinder (R)]
