Abstract

New amphiphilic polysaccharides based on alginate-grafted-Poly (ε-caprolactone) or alg-g-PCL bearing two kinds of PCL chains with different molar masses (1250 and 530 gmol−1) with various amounts from 3% to 15% were prepared. Rheological properties in aqueous solutions of such systems have been investigated as a function of polymer concentration, added salt and temperature in semi-dilute regime. Strong hydrophobic intermolecular associations were clearly demonstrated in pure water whatever the PCL chain length and extend of modification. Increasing polymer concentration, grafting rate and/or PCL chains length can lead to a structured liquid behaviour. Rheological properties of the most organized system have been found independent to the temperature (until 60 °C). In salt media, a strong dependence of hydrophobic interactions to the length of PCL chains was observed. For MPCL = 1250 g.mol−1 the screening of charges promotes the establishment of intermolecular interactions and leads to a strong physical gel for the highest grafting rates. For MPCL = 530 g mol−1, ionic strength leads to a decrease of rheological properties when increasing grafting rate. This result may indicate an increase of hydrophobic clusters even in the entangled regime. This unusual behaviour opens the ways for the preparation of suitable hydrogels for drug release.
