A polylactide copolymer with pendant benzyloxy groups has been synthesized by the copolymerization of a benzyl-ether substituted monomer with lactide. Debenzylation of the polymer to provide pendant hydroxyl groups followed by modification with succinic anhydride affords the corresponding carboxylic acid functionalized copolymer that is amenable to standard(More)
We have designed and built a microfluidic liquid cell capable of high-resolution atomic force microscope (AFM) imaging and force spectroscopy. The liquid cell was assembled from three molded poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) pieces and integrated with commercially purchased probes. The AFM probe was embedded within the assembly such that the cantilever and tip(More)
Side-chain-functionalized lactide analogues have been synthesized from commercially available amino acids and polymerized using stannous octoate as a catalyst. The synthetic strategy presented allows for the incorporation of any protected amino acid for the preparation of functionalized diastereomerically pure lactide monomers. The resulting functionalized(More)
