The synthesis of a family of polymer stars with arms of varied tacticities is discussed. The effect of polymer tacticity on the physical properties of these polymer stars is presented. Dipentaerythritol cores support six poly(lactic acid) (PLA) arms. Lewis acidic tin and aluminum catalysts control t...

Controlled radical polymerization has become increasingly important over the past decade and a half, allowing for the facile synthesis of specific macromolecular architectures with excellent control over the chemical and physical properties. This article presents an organized and detailed review of ...

A critical review: the ring-opening polymerization of cyclic esters provides access to an array of biodegradable, bioassimilable and renewable polymeric materials. Building these aliphatic polyester polymers into larger macromolecular frameworks provides further control over polymer characteristics ...

Aluminum-based salen and salan complexes mediate the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of rac-β-butyrolactone (β-BL), rac-lactide, and ε-caprolactone. Al-salen and Al-salan complexes exhibit excellent control over the ROP of rac-β-butyrolactone, yielding atactic poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) wit...

Three aluminium salophen and two aluminium salen complexes were synthesised, characterised and screened in the ring-opening polymerisation (ROP) of rac-lactide and rac-β-butyrolactone. The focus was on controlling the apparent polymerisation rate (k p) and stereoselectivity of poly(lactic acid) and...

A family of polymer stars has been prepared from early generation dendritic cores with four, six, and eight arms. Four dendritic cores were prepared from the sequential reaction of a multifunctional alcohol with a protected anhydride, followed by deprotection to afford two or three new alcohol funct...

Initiation of the polymerization of vinyl acetate with azobis(isobutyronitrile) in the presence of a vanadium bis(iminopyridine) complex generates vanadium-capped dormant polymer chains with excellent correlation between molecular weight and conversion and good molecular weight distributions.

In controlled release, each patient’s body displays different pharmacokinetics for the degradation of the drug delivery system affecting the release of the bioactive compound. The proposed research aims to develop polymeric systems based on a host/guest core capable of indicating controlled releas...
