We studied biodegradation resistance of a custom synthesized (by TDA Research Inc) novel ethylene glycol ethyl methacrylate (EGEMA) with ester bond linkages that are external to the central polymer backbone when polymerized. Experiments were designed to compare degradation resistance with Ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) with internal ester bond linkages. The data has been published in an article titled "A Novel Methacrylate Derivative Polymer That Resists Bacterial Cell-Mediated Biodegradation" in the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research: Part B - Applied Biomaterials. The data in this record supports the figures in the published manuscript.
