Abstract Crystallization-driven self assembly (CDSA) was achieved with fully degradable amphiphilic block polymers derived from three natural products, l -lactide, l -cysteine and d -glucose, to afford spherical and cylindrical nanostructures. A series of functional l -cysteine-modified diblock copolymers, poly( l -lactide)- block -poly(α- d -glucose carbonate)s (PLLA- b -PDGC-cys), was synthesized by organocatalyzed sequential ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of l -lactide and an alkyne… CONTINUE READING
