Thermoresponsive CO2-based biodegradable polycarbonates are designed and prepared. The lower critical solution temperature (LCST) can be quantitatively controlled within a temperature range covering physiological temperature, among which polycarbonate with a LCST of 36.3 °C (close to body temperature) is available.
