Rate Accelerated Organocatalytic Ring-Opening Polymerization of L-Lactide via the Application of a Bis(thiourea) H-bond Donating Cocatalyst.


A cocatalyst system consisting of an alkylamine base and a bis(thiourea) featuring a linear alkane tether is shown to dramatically increase the rate of ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of L-lactide versus previously disclosed monothiourea H-bond donors. Rate acceleration occurs regardless of the identity of the alkylamine cocatalyst, and the ROP remains… (More)
