Side-chain functionalisation of unsaturated polyesters from ring-opening polymerisation of macrolactones by thiol–ene click chemistry

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel method for the modification of polyglobalide, produced by enzymatic ring-opening polymerisation, with pendant side-chains viathiol–ene click chemistry is disclosed. This methodology may offer a chemically simplistic route to the (bio)functionalisation of polyesters.
