The refractive index (RI) is an important parameter for intraocular lens biomaterials. In this paper, a novel carbazole-grafted methacrylic polysiloxane macromonomer (MA-CZ-PDMS) with a high RI value was synthesized and its structure was confirmed by proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR). The polysiloxane macromonomer can copolymerize with monomers of 3-methacryloxypropyl tris(trimethylsiloxy) silane (TRIS) and N,N-dimethylacrylamide (DMA) to prepare transparent high RI silicone hydrogel. Increasing MA-CZ-PDMS macromonomer content in the silicone hydrogels improved its water content, RI value, and mechanical properties, however decreased slightly glass transition temperature (Tg) and transmittance of blue light. The carbazole-grafted silicone hydrogel possessed good cytocompatibility and in vivo biocompatibility in rabbit eyes. The results demonstrate that the carbazole-grafted silicone hydrogel has a potential application as high RI ocular refractive correction biomaterial. This journal is © The Royal Society of Chemistry.

In the paper, a new biodegradable polyurethane (PU, PU-I) was prepared: the prepolymer was synthesized via bulk ring-opening polymerization with poly(ethylene glycol) (Mn = 600) (PEG600) as an initiator and l-lactide (l-LA), ε-caprolactone (CL) as monomers, and the prepolymer was chain-extended with an isocyanate-terminated urethane triblock (macrodiisocyanate) to prepare the PU. The macrodiisocyanate, prepolymer and PUs were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, FT-IR, high resolution mass spectrometry (HR-MS), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The corresponding PU films showed excellent mechanical properties with a tensile strength of 27.5 MPa and an elongation at break of 996%, and also maintained mechanical properties in physiological saline at 37°C for more than three weeks, which appeared to be more suitable for biomedical applications. © 2015 Zhao-Sheng Hou.
