A novel poly(DL-lactic acid) (PLA) derivative with a diethoxy propanol ester at the end, named PLA-acetal, was synthesized by ring opening polymerization using DL-lactide and 3,3-diethoxy propanol. PLA-acetal was hydrolyzed to a PLA derivative with a formyl group, named PLA-aldehyde, by acid treatment. Reductive amination between PLA-aldehyde and methoxypolyethylene glycol amine (MeO-PEG(N)) gave the block copolymer (PLA-(MeO-PEG(N))). Nanoparticles were prepared by emulsification-solvent… Expand
Preparation and biodisposition of methoxypolyethylene glycol amine-poly(DL-lactic acid) copolymer nanoparticles loaded with pyrene-ended poly(DL-lactic acid).
PLA-pyrene was retained stably in PLA-(MeO-PEG) nanoparticles in a PBS-ethanol (7:3, v/v) mixture and a plasma-PBS (1:1, v / v) mixture, indicating that PLA- pyrene might be a useful marker of PLA-( meO- PEG) Nanoparticles themselves. Expand
