We report a highly efficient method for the synthesis of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) by the carbonylative polymerization of propylene oxide. The use of compatible epoxide carbonylation and lactone polymerization catalysts allows for a one-pot reaction that eliminates the need to isolate and purify the toxic beta-butyrolactone intermediate.
