poly-llactide acid

Polylactide (Poly(lactic acid), PLA) is a polymer obtained by the ring-opening polymerization of lactide (cyclic dimer of lactic acid) as monomer.

PLLA polymer is mainly applied for absorbable bone fixture and utilized for stent and adhesion barrier. When the stereo complex PLA (scPLA) is formed with PLLA and PDLA, scPLA has higher melting point and superior mechanical properties than PLLA and PDLA. (source: BMG Inc.)
