Substrate Report for: Polycaprolactone

Polycaprolactone (PCL) is a biodegradable polyester. The most common use of polycaprolactone is in the manufacture of speciality polyurethanes. Polycaprolactones impart good resistance to water, oil, solvent and chlorine. PCL is degraded by hydrolysis of its ester linkages in physiological conditions (such as in the human body) and is used as in long-term implants and controlled drug release applications.
