Poly (propylene fumarate) is an unsaturated linear polyester, which degrades, in the presence of water, into propylene glycol and fumaric acid, and the degradation products can be cleared from the human body by normal metabolic processes. In this paper, different methods of the synthesis of PPF are listed, the crosslinking characteristics of polymerizing composite as well as the mechanical properties of cross-linked composite are discussed, and the potentialities of PPF composite used as particularly degradable polymeric cement for orthopedic application are reviewed.
