This study provides new insights into the design and controlled synthesis of side-chain unsaturated fatty acid containing polymers, with specific attention to facile post-polymerization modification reactions. The methacrylate derivative of oleic acid, 2-(methacryloyloxy)ethyl oleate (MAEO), has been synthesized and polymerized by the reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) process to obtain poly(2-(methacryloyloxy)ethyl oleate) (PMAEO) with controlled molecular weight, narrow…
