We describe here the first example of trimethylsilyl sulfide (S-TMS) mediated controlled ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of α-amino acid N-carboxyanhydrides (NCAs). We show that phenyl trimethylsilyl sulfide (PhS-TMS), an inexpensive and commercially available compound, mediates rapid ROP of a broad scope of NCA monomers, produces functional poly(amino acids) (PAAs) with controllable molecular weights (MWs), narrow polydispersity index (PDI), and an in situ generated phenyl thioester group at… CONTINUE READING
