Functionalized cyclic carbonates: From synthesis and metal-free catalyzed ring-opening polymerization to applications

View publication

Abstract

Aliphatic polycarbonates are often referenced for their interesting applications due to their lower tendency to undergo hydrolysis, lower T g, and their degradation in renewable resources. Their synthesis is described using a series of metal-free catalysts allowing preparation of well-defined polymers in terms of molecular weights and structures. Additionally, some highlights regarding their biomedical applications such as drug targeting are presented. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
