Facile RAFT synthesis of side-chain amino acids containing pH-responsive hyperbranched and star architectures†


This work reports the design and synthesis of amino acid-based hyperbranched polymers via the combination of self-condensing vinyl polymerization (SCVP) and reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization from tert-butyl carbamate (Boc)-L-valine acryloyloxyethyl ester (Boc-Val-HEA) and S-(4-vinyl)benzyl S’-butyltrithiocarbonate (VBBT… (More)
