Made using TMP. depending on the end-grafted copolymer composition. The final copolymer was isolated, ground, and heated under reduced pressure to remove the residual monomer. The thermal properties of the copolymer were determined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Representative copolymers were melt-spun into monofilaments using a 1/2 in. single screw extruder at temperatures that were at least 5rC above the DSC determined Tm. ) of the polymers or extruded monofilaments was measured in hexafluoro-2-propanol if their crystallinity allowed their solubility in such solvent.

In the first stage, an amorphous copolymer of CL and/or TMC was prepared. In the second stage, the prepolymer was allowed to react with an l-lactide or a mixture of l-lactide and CL or TMC in the solid state. 7 At the conclusion of polymerization, the solid polymer was isolated, ground, and trace amounts of unreacted monomer were removed by heating under reduced pressure. ) measurement and thermal properties using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The dry polymer granules were extruded into monofilaments using a 1/2 in.

To study the effect of minor changes in composition of the polyaxial initiator on the hydrolytic and thermal properties of crystalline polymeric endgrafted copolyester, glycolide was substituted with a molecularly equivalent amount of dl-lactide to prepare the polyaxial polymeric initiator. The corresponding end-grafted crystalline copolyester (IX) was isolated, purified, and characterized under conditions identical to VII. 4, as well as in a constant humidity chamber having a relative humidity of 75% at 25rC.
