Epoxy functionalised poly(ε-caprolactone): synthesis and application

Author affiliations

Abstract

Glycidol is used as an initiator for ring-opening polymerisation of ε-caprolactone (ε-CL) to synthesise epoxy-functionalised poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) in a reaction catalysed by lipase, and the epoxy-functionalised PCL was further copolymerised with carbon dioxide or anhydride to produce novel graft or hyperbranched copolymers.
