A novel glycopolymeric ultraviolet absorber covering UV-A and UV-B ranges

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this communication, a novel biocompatible polymeric ultraviolet absorber (UVA), poly(HAB-co-OAG-co-AMC) (PHOA), covering UV-A and UV-B ranges was designed and prepared. The photo-antioxidant tests indicate that there is a synergism between UV-A and UV-B monomers. The cytotoxic experiments demonstrate that PHOA has good biocompatibility.
