Polygylyconate sutures are copolymers of glycolic acid and trimethylene
Enhancement in the thermal and mechanical properties of multi-walled CNTs (MWCNTs)/poly(trimethylene
terephthalate) (PTT) nanocomposites have been demonstrated by Wu et al.

Charles Goodyear would have been stymied if he tried silanes, yet the silica-silane mindset permeates today's compounding and obviates interfacial surface modification innovation using non-hydroxyl bearing materials like vulcanizing agents, accelerators, blowing agents, organic fibers, and even Portland cement, which is 74% trimethylene
sulfide and carbon disulfide, with the balance being tricalcium aluminate, Ca, Mg, A1 and S oxides.

Ammonia, ethylenediamine and trimethylene
diamine, ethyl bromoacetate, NaH, and THF/DMF were bought from Acros Organic, Belgium.
TIGR[R] (Novus Scientific, Uppsala, Sweden), a multifilament mesh based on a fast-degrading PLGA and slow-degrading poly(trimethylene
carbonate) (PTMC), and GORE BIO-A[R] (Gore, Newark, DE, USA), an electrospun mesh based on polyglycolic acid (PGA)-PTMC copolymer, have shown limited mechanical load-bearing properties during application .
Pure PLA as well as PLA blends of 5 wt% polycaprolactone (PCL) or poly(trimethylene
carbonate) (PTMC) were used as reference materials.

Basic results led to development of a series of scaffolds based on PNIPAAM, including biodegradable dextran (Dex) grafted PCL-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (PCL-HEMA)/PNIPAAM (Dex-PCL-HEMA/ PNIPAAM), and copolymerization of NIPAAM, acrylic acid (AAc), and hydroxyethyl methacrylate-poly (trimethylene
carbonate) (HEMAPTMC), to create poly(NIPAAM-co-AAc-co-HEMAPTMC), and were shown to preserve or improve cardiac function in small animal infarct models with the property of releasing molecules into the surrounding media characteristic of biodegradation [93-95].
The 2016 poster session winners were: doctoral student Thomas Rooney for his poster on "Synthesis, Applications, and Radical Copolymerization Kinetics of Novel Degradable Macromonomers;" masters student Amanda Brissenden for her poster on "Modified Trimethylene
Carbonate as a Thermosensitive Polymer Scaffold for Connective Tissue Regeneration" and undergraduate student Fairuz Hoque for his poster on "HL-60 Cell Response to PMMA Surfaces of Different Chemistry and Roughness with a Focus on Extracellular Traps." People's Choice Awards were presented to Srijit Nair, Elyse Johnston-Haynes and Saeed Yazdi.
