Abstract Polymerization of α-substituted trimethylene carbonate (TMC) can give access to novel aliphatic polycarbonates. To combine the tunability provided by an aromatic substituent and the controlled polymerization conditions available for the synthesis of aliphatic polycarbonates, we have developed a regio-regular ring opening polymerization (ROP) of α-aryl trimethylene carbonate (α-ArTMC). Regio-regular ROP of α-methyl trimethylene carbonate (α-MeTMC) has been reported previously. Recently, ...

Platelet-like and cylindrical nanostructures from sugar-based polymers are designed to mimic the aspect ratio of bacteria and achieve uroepithelial cell binding and internalization, thereby improving their potential for local treatment of recurrent urinary tract infections. Polymer nanostructures, derived from amphiphilic block polymers composed of zwitterionic poly(d-glucose carbonate) and semicrystalline poly(l-lactide) segments, were constructed with morphologies that could be tuned to enhanc...

Synthesizing different types of sequence-controlled copolyesters can enrich the diversity of copolyesters and modify their properties more precisely, but it is still a challenge to synthesize a complicated sequence-controlled copolyester using different hydroxy acids in a living polymerization manner. In this work, a highly regioselective and stereoselective catalytic system was developed to synthesize biorenewable and biodegradable copolyesters of mandelic acid and lactic acid with isotactic-al...

Aliphatic polycarbonates have gained increased attention as biomaterials largely owing to their biocompatibility and tunable degradation. Moreover, the ability to introduce functional handles in the polymer backbone through careful design of cyclic carbonate monomers or copolymerization with other biodegradable polymers has significantly contributed to the interest in exploiting this class of materials for biomedical applications. Such investigations have enabled their utility to be expanded to ...
