Epub 2016 Oct 19.Shape-memory polymers (SMPs) are stimuli-responsive materials known for their outstanding ability to be actuated from temporary shape into original shape. Because of this unique functionality SMPs are promising materials for diverse technological applications including smart biomedical devices. In this article, the work has been focused towards tailoring the SMP precursor and crosslinker wt% to obtain biocompatible acrylate based shape memory polymer with glass transition temperature (Tg) close to human body temperature.
