In sharp contrast: Poly(carboxybetaine) (PCB)–poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) block copolymers were obtained by inclusion of tBu groups onto the PCB monomers. The resulting self-assembled PLGA core/PCB shell nanoparticles have extraordinary stability and a high potential for functionalization because of the COO groups on the PCB shell (see picture; EDC=1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide; NHS=N-hydroxysuccinimide).
