Lipase-catalyzed ring-opening polymerization of molecularly pure cyclic oligomers for use in synthesis and chemical recycling of aliphatic polyesters.

Abstract

The lipase-catalyzed ROP of molecularly pure cyclic oligomers with a definite degree of oligomerization is analyzed with respect to the molecular weights of the resulting polymers and certain kinetic parameters of the enzymatic reaction. Cyclic BA dimers, trimers, and tetramers polymerize faster than the equivalent monomer; however, the latter produces PBA… (More)
