Abstract

Functionalization of poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) was performed via hydrolysis and subsequent grafting of lactose-modified chitosan (chitlac) at two different degrees of derivatization (9% and 64%). Time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) and multivariate analysis (principal component analysis) were successfully applied to the characterization of PCL surface chemistry, evidencing changes in the biopolymer surface following base-catalyzed hydrolysis treatment. ToF-SIMS analysis also confirmed positive EDC/NHS-catalyzed (EDC: N-ethyl-N'-(3-(dimethylamino)propyl)carbodiimide; NHS: N-hydroxysuccinimide) immobilization of chitlac onto activated PCL surface, with formation of amide bonds between PCL surface carboxyl groups and amine residues of chitlac. Yield of grafting reaction was also shown to be dependent upon the lactosilation degree of chitlac.
