A Functionalized Cyclic Lactide Monomer for Synthesis of Water-Soluble Poly(Lactic Acid) and Amphiphilic Diblock Poly(Lactic Acid).


Biodegradable and bioabsorbable poly(lactic acid)s are one of the most important biomedical materials. However, it is difficult to introduce the functional groups into poly(lactic acid)s in order to improve their hydrophilicity and degradation rate. Here the authors describe the synthesis of functionalized cyclic lactide monomer 3,6-bis(benzyloxymethyl)-1,4… (More)
