Biological surface modification by ‘thiol-ene’ addition of polymers synthesised by catalytic chain transfer polymerisation (CCTP)

Abstract

Copolymers of oligo(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylates and allyl methacrylate have been synthesised by catalytic chain transfer polymerisation (CCTP) and reacted with α-keratin in human hair via Michael addition to cysteine residues. Further modification of the polymer conjugates was carried out using a fluorescent tag as a model via achieved thiol-ene chemistry.
