Summary

Preparation of degradable materials using reversible deactivation radical polymerizations (RDRP) is of particular interest for biomedical applications. In this paper we report preparation of degradable copolymers of 2-methylene-4-phenyl-1,3-dioxolane (MPDL), monomer which undergoes ring-opening reaction and forms ester bond upon radical polymerization, with hydrophobic and hydrophilic methacrylate monomers using atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). Copolymers composition and degradation were evaluated upon varied temperature and monomer type.
Keywords: degradable materials, reversible deactivation radical polymerizations, copolymers of 2-methylene-4-phenyl-1,3-dioxolane, atom transfer radical polymerization
