Synthesis and characterization of electroactive and biodegradable ABA block copolymer of polylactide and aniline pentamer.


A triblock copolymer PLA-b-AP-b-PLA (PAP) of polylactide (PLA) and aniline pentamer (AP) with the unique properties of being both electroactive and biodegradable is synthesized by coupling an electroactive carboxyl-capped AP with two biodegradable bi-hydroxyl-capped PLAs via a condensation reaction. Three different molecule weight PAP copolymers are… (More)
