The SMPs listed in Figure 10 include six-arm polyethylene glycol-polycaprolactone (6A PEG-PCL), polyethylene-covinyl acetate (cEVA), semicrystalline poly [epsilon]-caprolactone (cPCL), crosslinked polyethylene (cPE), 1,6-hexamethylene diisocyanate (HMDI) + PCL + 1,4-butanediol (BDHPL), oligo [epsilon]-caprolactone (OCL), polycaprolactone (PCL)gelatin, PCL-poly tetra-methylene ether glycol (PCLPTMEG), poly cyclooctene-dicumyl peroxide (PCO-DCP), polydopamine-poly [epsilon]-caprolactone (PDA-PCL), poly ester urethane (PEU), poly octylene adipate (POA), poly pentadecalactone-poly [epsilon]-caprolactone (PPD-PCL), and preelongated shape memory polyurethane with unelongated elastic polyurethane (SMPU-PU).
Thus, in this study, we report the cytotoxicity of three palladium(II) complexes with dithiocarbamate ligands and the effect of hydrocarbon chain lengths (propylene, butylene, and octylene) in the structure of these complexes on the anticancer activity compared to cisplatin.
There are several promising methods for improved adhesion as follows: (i) activation of the surface (oxidation) of the rubber particles by high energy treatment (UV [5]; gamma irradiation [6]; plasma or corona charge [7]); (ii) compatibilization of the blend by irradiation [8, 9] or applying compatibilizers like ethylene octylene copolymer (POE) [10]; ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) [10]; chlorinated polyethylene (CPE); maleic anhydride-grafted-polyethylene (MA-g-PE); ethylene-propylene copolymer (EPR) [11-13]; and ethylene-propylene-dien terpolymer (EPDM) [2, 12]; and (iii) preparation of thermoplastic dynamic vulcanizates by in situ vulcanization of RTR in thermoplastic matrices [14-19].
