|Abstract||Poly( propylene fumarate-co-ethylene glycol) random (PPF-1) and block (PPF-2) copolymer oligomers were prepared. Comparing the setting characteristics of PPF-1 and PPF-2 with comonomer n-vinyl pyrrolidone (n-VP) and swelling characteristics of cured PPF-1 and PPF-2, lower setting temperature and setting time was observed with the former leading to higher swelling coefficient and lower cross link density in the cured PPF-1. Due to the high swelling coefficient and low setting exothermic temperature associated with PPF-1, the bone cement was prepared from PPF-1, n-VP and hydroxyapatite (HAP).The in vitro degradation studies reveal lesser weight loss and deformation of PPF-1/n-VP/HAP based cured resin in Ringer's solution and phosphate buffered saline in comparison with that of PPF-1/n-VP cured resin. Though the bone cement composite has adequate mechanical properties with HAP, the compressive strength and modulus of the composite aged in Ringer's solution and PBS reduced appreciably which is due to extensive hydration and plasticization by the PEG unit. However, the bone-binding and bond strength of the bone cement determined as the load for separation of bones was found to be similar to that of fast setting calcium phosphate - atelocollagen (5%) bone cement. The bone cement PPF-1/n-VP/HAP could be used as scaffold for correcting the bone defects.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
