Polyanhydride copolymers of bis(carboxyphenoxy) propane(CPP) and sebacic acid(SA) as used for controlled release applications are biomaterials which collectively posses a wide range of properties including melting point temperatures and matrix degradation rates. Variations in copolymer composition have marked effects on degradative rates. This paper presents theoretical analyses predictive of relationships between copolymer composition, melting point temperature, enthalpy and crystallinity. These are contrasted with experimental data of polyanhydride copolymer chemico-physical characteristics and matrix degradative phenomena.
