General description

Poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) is a crystalline, thermoplastic, water-soluble polymer that is commercially available.

Application

PEO (Mv ~ 1,000,000, powder) can be used in the fabrication of hollow TiO2 fibers, which can be used for a variety of applications such as drug delivery, catalysts, sensors, and electric devices. It can also be used as an electrolyte for the formation of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs).

Previous studies have demonstrated that Separan AP-30, a drag-reducing polymer, significantly decreased the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in rabbits fed a high-cholesterol diet. Furthermore, Separan AP-273, a polymer similar to but longer than Separan AP-30, markedly increased cardiac output in...
