Synthesis of polyethylene glycol- and sulfobetaine-conjugated zwitterionic poly(L-lactide) and assay of its antifouling properties.


A new antifouling polyester monomethoxy-poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(L-lactide)-b-poly(sulfobetaine methacrylate) (MPEG-PLA-PSBMA) was obtained by ring-opening polymerization of L-lactide, and subsequent click chemistry to graft the azide end-functionalized poly(sulfobetaine methacrylate) (polySBMA) moieties onto the alkyne end-functionalized MPEG-PLA (MPEG… (More)
