The synthesis and characterization of a degradable version of poly(acrylic acid), poly(glyceric acid carbonate), are reported. Specifically, atactic and isotactic poly(benzyl glycidate carbonate)s are obtained via the ring-opening copolymerization of rac-/(R)-benzyl glycidate with CO2 using a bifunctional rac-/(S,S)-cobalt salen catalyst in high carbonate(More)
The synthesis of novel carbohydrate-based polymers allows the structure to be tailored at the monomer level for a specific property and expands the range of available structures beyond those found in nature. Using a controlled anionic polymerization, a new type of carbohydrate polymer is synthesized in which glucose-derived monomers are joined by an α-1,2(More)
The first synthesis of poly-amido-saccharides (PASs) from a galactose(gal)-derived β-lactam sugar monomer is reported. The polymers are prepared using a controlled anionic ring-opening polymerization and characterized by NMR, optical rotation, IR, and GPC. Galactose-derived PASs display high solubility in aqueous solutions and are noncytotoxic to HepG2,(More)
Poly-amido-saccharides (PAS) are carbohydrate-based, enantiopure synthetic polymers in which sugar repeat units are joined by amide linkages. This unique and relatively rigid pyranose backbone contributes to their defined helical secondary structure and remarkable chemical properties. Glucose- (glc-) and galactose- (gal-) PAS 10-mer structures are(More)
