This paper solely describes about novel aliphatic polymer prepared from polyethyleneglycol (PEG 400) moieties by melt poly condensation of 1, 4- cyclohexanediol and dodecanedioic acid. The structural elucidation of the polymer obtained, were thoroughly investigated by various techniques such as FTIR, NMR, DSC, TGA, XRD. The polycondensation reaction was carried out by the presence of Titanium (IV) isopropoxide as catalyst. We have also discussed about the biological properties like antioxidant and biocompatibility of the polymers with its non-toxic effect.
