Rapid Synthesis of Ring-Shaped Molecules Offers a Cheap Route to a Plethora of Polymers


A simple and inexpensive method to make a range of cyclic monomers has been developed by A*STAR researchers. These new monomers were used to make biodegradable polymers with potential applications from drug or gene delivery to environmentally-friendly packaging. There are many established commercially-viable routes to non-degradable synthetic polymers, but making degradable analogs remains time-consuming, difficult and expensive. Yi Yan Yang at the A*STAR Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology and co-workers have now developed a two-stage route to degradable polycarbonates that overcomes these issues. more
