Controlled Photoredox Ring-Opening Polymerization

Description:

Poly(a-hydroxy acids) (PAHAs), including polylactide (PLA), are important polymers that have been widely used in applications ranging from biomedical devices to packaging materials. We develop an unprecedented methodology to prepare high molecular weight PAHAs with side chain functionality.
