Polydioxanone PDS PDO

INTRODUCTION TO POLYDIOXANONE

Polydioxanone PDS, also abbreviated PDO, or poly-p-dioxanone is a colorless, crystalline, biodegradable polymer that is used for biomedical applications, particularly in the preparation of sutures. The polymer is obtained by ring-opening polymerization of the monomer p-dioxanone, in a process requiring heat and an organometallic catalyst like zirconium acetylacetone or zinc L-lactate.
