Synthesis, structure and properties of poly(L-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone) statistical copolymers.


Four poly(L-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone) (PLCL) copolymers were synthesized at 120, 130, 140 and 150 °C by ring opening polymerization using stannous octoate catalyst at a 2000:1 comonomer:catalyst ratio. Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) and (1)H NMR measurements were performed to determine the molecular weight, composition and chain microstructure of… (More)
