Ludovic Dupayage, Cécile Nouvel and Jean-Luc Six Protected versus unprotected dextran macroinitiators for ATRP synthesis of Dex-g-PMMA Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry 49
Two strategies for the synthesis of amphiphilic dextran-g-poly(methyl methacrylate) glycopolymers (Dex-g-PMMA) have been examined and compared to control the macromolecular parameters of such glycopolymers using ‘grafting from’ concept and Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization. One is involving four steps including a protection/deprotection approach and the second one only two steps. These two types of polysaccharidic macroinitiators differ in term of solubility and of position of the initiators groups on the glucosidic units. Advantages and drawbacks of both types of macroinitiators have finally been discussed.
