A monomeric model structurally comparable to the active end of a living poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), i.e., a methyl α-lithioisobutyrate (MIBLi)/THF solution, was studied by both Li-7 and C-13 NMR. It has been shown that two different coordination aggregates exist in a MEBLi/THF solution. That situation corresponds to a slow exchange process between tetramer and dimer, i.e. the later being favored by a decrease in temperature or concentration. Such an equilibrium is characterized with ΔH = -2.1 kcal/mol and ΔS = -13.7 cal/mol.K by means of Li-7 NMR. Again, C-13 NMR results obtained suggest that a MIBLi/THF solution displays a charge-delocalized character, which is different from a O-Li-bonded bonded structure in solid state established by crystal analyses of several similar ester enolates.

A chemically modified form of dextran was prepared; having a polymerizable moiety (acrylamide) and a reactive functional group (primary amine). Dextran was activated with 4-nitrophenylchloroformate (24 mol per polysaccharide, 9,8 mol per 100 glucose residues); 9,8% glucose residues were converted to aliphatic carbonates and 5,2% were converted to cyclic carbonates. The activated dextran was coupled with trityldiaminoethane (8 mol per 100 glucose residues), reactivated with 4-nitrophenylchloroformate, then coupled with acryloamidodiaminohexane (6,8 mol per 100 glucose residues). The trityl group was removed by hydrolysis with trifluoroacetic acid to yield the required aminated acryloamidodextran. The modified dextran was shown to be polymerizable by inverse emulsion polymerization. Submicron particules were successfully prepared, containing functional amine groups suitable for preparing drug conjugates or for modifying the surface properties of thisbiomaterial. [less ▲]

This paper is related to the phase separation of different copolyesters of lactides and glycolide solutions induced by the addition of silicone oil in order to promote microencapsulation of proteins. This coating process can be divided in three successive steps: phase separation of the coating polymer; adsorption of the coacervate droplets around the drugs phase, and microcapsule solidification. This paper focuses on the physico-chemical analysis of the second step. The knowledge of the interfacial tensions between the three liquid phases allows understanding of the microscopic evolution of the phase separation medium. [less ▲]

Whenever added with triethylaluminum, primary amines have been found to be effective initiators for epsilon-caprolactone polymerization in both toluene and THF at 40°C. The IR and NMR analysis of the polyester has supported a polymerization mechanism proceeding through a "coordination-insertion" pathway and the selective rupture of the acyl-oxygen bond of the monomer. The alkylaluminum activates the carbonyl group of the monomer and accordingly favors the nucleophilic addition of the amine, which is the actual initiation step. Propagation is typically a living process, and the molecular weight distribution is controlled by both AlEt3/amine molar ratio and solvent As an extension of that mechanism, diethylaluminum omega-amino alkoxide has been prepared on purpose and successfully used as an initiator for the synthesis of α,ω-dihydroxypoly(ε-caprolactone).

Tailor-made poly(tert-butyl acrylate) macromonomers, which are useful building blocks for the synthesis of comb or multiblock copolymers, have been successfully synthesized by deactivation of living PtBA macroanions with suitable electrophiles bearing either styrene or methacrylic unsaturation. Mono- or bifunctional initiators such as sec-butyllithium or naphthalenyllithium can be used. When these initiators were modified by LiCl as a mu-type ligand, the macroanions which are known to be living were functionalized with high efficiency. Characterization of the various macromonomers was performed using H-1 NMR spectroscopy and SEC. [less ▲]

The synthesis and use of functional diethylaluminum alkoxides (Et2AlORX) as initiators for the ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone have been investigated as a possible strategy to prepare omega-primary amino poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL). In a first approach, an initiator containing ethylphthalimide as the functional-RX group has been synthesized. That protected amino group has been successfully attached at the end of PCL chains. The conversion of the phthalimide end group into a primary amine has however failed, whatever the experimental conditions. In an alternative approach, an alkyl bromide has been considered as the functional group to be attached to PCL chains, via the appropriate initiator. The end functionalization was quantitative and the bromo end group converted into an azido group which was subsequently reduced to the expected primary amine. Omega-primary amino PCL has proved to be an effective macroinitiator for the ring-opening polymerization of γ-benzylglutamate N-carboxy anhydride with the formation of a poly(caprolactone-b-peptide) diblock copolymer.

Copolymerization of mixtures of epsilon-caprolactone (epsilon-CL) and D,L- or L-lactide has been initiated by aluminum isopropoxide. On the basis of the monomer reactivity ratios and assuming that no side reaction occurs, tapered copolymers should be formed particularly when D,L-lactide is the comonomer rather than L-lactide. The sequential distribution of the comonomers has been analyzed by an original method based on the quantitative measurement of the carbonyl C-13 signals. Comparison of the experimental and the theoretical distributions clearly shows that transesterification reactions occur during copolymerization through both intra- and intermolecular mechanisms. Gel permeation chromatography and differential scanning calorimetry data support that conclusion. The D,L-lactide-based copolymers have however a more blocky structure than those containing L-lactide, and they are also less sensitive to transesterification reactions. [less ▲]
