Efficient, original synthesis of poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS) via polycondensation of glycerine and sebacic acid 9 was achieved. The process was successfully optimized by using the Box−Behnken design. PGS was obtained with a high 10 conversion of the carboxylic group (89%) and a very high degree of esterification (∼82%), containing no catalysts residues. A 11 method was developed for purification of prepolymer PGS. Because biocompatible substrates are used, this method for 12 obtaining the polymer can be used in medical and pharmaceutical applications.
