Thesis project at QMUL for MSc Dental Materials
  • The aim of the project was to synthesize and characterize bio stable polyether urethane based Guided Tissue Regeneration Membrane. By incorporating and surface grafting a therapeutic agent such as Doxycycline Hyclate with in the membrane. Characterization techniques used for the project were Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Raman Spectroscopy other techniques such as X-ray photoelectron Spectroscopy were also studied and added as a future work for the project”
