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.
