Cationic glycopolymers through controlled polymerisation of a glucosamine-based monomer mimicking the behaviour of chitosan

Author affiliations

Abstract

A newly synthesised glucosamine-based monomer was able to undergo controlled polymerisation and retain amine functionality. Both the homopolymer and micellar formulations could be uptaken into Caco-2 monolayers, successfully mimicking mucoadhesive properties of native chitosan.
