Hydroxyl functional aliphatic polycarbonates with tailored functionality can be prepared directly from CO2 and functional glycidyl ethers. The protected monomer isopropylidene (glyceryl glycidyl ether) (IGG) and glycidyl methyl ether (GME) are polymerized with CO2, using a readily available Zn-pyrogallol catalyst system. The functional polycarbonates possess Mn between 12 000 and 25 000 g mol−1 (Mw/Mn = 2.5–3.3) and are promising, for example, as supports for catalysts, drugs, or reagents.
