The synthesis and characterization of bioelastic materials designed for specific applications of wound healing. For materials with possible use as wound coverings, control of the temperature of transition by changes in hydrophobicity will be examined. In addition, the rate of water passage through the matrix will be determined. The research approach is the stepwise coordination of the synthesis and characterization of the materials. The first application phase was concerned primarily with synthesis of the basic polypentapeptide polyVPGVG and the analog with L-alanine substituted in position 3, polyVPAVG and mole fraction combinations thereof to achieve elastomeric matrices of varying elastic moduli.
