In order to synthesize four-arm [PTOL-(PLGA- mPEG)4], poly(ethylene glycol) monomethyl ether (mPEG) was modified to mPEG carboxylic acid (mPEGacid) at first. Then, the synthesis of [PTOL-(PLGA- mPEG)4] was carried out by esterification reaction with PTOL-(PLGA)4 and mPEGacid. The effect of different hydrophilic and hydrophobic segments of the four-arm [PTOL-(PLGA- mPEG)4] on the phase diagram of gel formation under various polymer concentrations by rheometer and tube turn over methods was investigated.
The results showed that with an increase of the concentration of polymers, the temperature transferred from sol to gel decrease, but the temperature transferred from gel to precipitate phase increase. In addition, the temperature transferred from gel to precipitate phase can be increased under 1000ppm BSA solution.
