Abstract : The objective of the project was to develop high-strength reasorbable materials useful in the treatment of maxillofacial injuries. To meet this objective, we prepared high-purity monomers, synthesized high-molecular-weight polymers, fabricated the polymers into sample beams, and evaluated the beams for mechanical properties.
