    Random and block copolypept(o)ides of polysarcosine-co-poly(N-isopropyl-l-glutamine) (PSar-co-PIGA) and polysarcosine-b-poly(N-isopropyl-l-glutamine) (PSar-b-PIGA) were designed and synthesized via ROP of NCAs of sarcoine (Sar) and γ-benzyl-l-glutamate (BLG) followed by post-polymerization modification. Copolymerization of Sar with peptide easily altered the hydrogen bonding along the main chain, ultimately leading to different behavior in aggregation and gelation.
