Interfacial polymerization the reaction of monomers to form a polymer at the contact (interface) between two immiscible liquid layers. The monomers are dissolved in different layers, and only come into contact at the interface. Vicryl (polyglactin 910) is a copolymer formed by the polymerization of a mixture of purified lactide and glycolide (cyclic intermediates derived from lactic acid and glycolic acids) Nylon - synthetic polyamide polymer fiber Silk – a protein fibre produced by the silkworm larva which extrudes this fibre while synthesizing its cocoon (raw silk is white) Aneurysm - localized, blood-filled dilation (bulge) of a blood vessel caused by
