Ring-opening polymerization of γ-butyrolactone and its derivatives: A review (in English)

Polimery 2017, No 4, 272


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2017.272

Summary

γ-Butyrolactone (γ-BL) derivatives are reviewed from the point of view of their ability to form polymers by ring-opening polymerization. The thermodynamic limitations for polymerization of γ-BL are discussed. Polymerizability of naturally available unsaturated and synthetic functional γ-BL derivatives enabling postfunctionalization of final polyesters is presented. Homopolymerization of γ-BL derivatives with significant effect of the substituent on the γ-BL ring strain is shown.
Keywords: ring-opening polymerization, γ-butyrolactone, γ-butyrolactone derivatives, ­thermodynamic limitations, homopolymerization of γ-butyrolactone
