We have developed a novel one-step pool screening PCR procedure which is based on the principles of amplification refractory mutation system (ARMS) and competitive oligonuleotide priming (COP) PCR. In addition to the usual primers, this approach uses two allele-specific competitive oligonucleotides, one of which is 3'-end labeled with a dideoxynucleotide(More)
Spirocyclic tin initiators were prepared by condensation of commercial hydroxyethylated pentaerythritol with Bu(2)Sn(OMe)(2). These tin-containing spirocycles served as initiators for the ring-expansion polymerization of epsilon-caprolactone, beta-D,L-butyrolactone or D,L-lactide. The in situ polycondensation of these expanded spirocycles with terephthaloyl(More)
Condensation of Bu(2)Sn(OMe)(2) with poly(ethylene glycol)s yielded macrocyclic tin alkoxides which were, in turn, used as cyclic initiators for the ring-expansion polymerization of epsilon-caprolactone, D,L-lactide, or trimethylene carbonate. The resulting cyclic triblock copolymers were in situ cross-linked with trimesoyl chloride. The lengths of the(More)
