Abstract:

Article Preview

Poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL)-polystyrene (PS)star-block copolymer with a cross-linked microgel core were synthesized by the combination of atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of St and lipase-catalyzed ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of ε-CL. The characterization of PCL-Br, PCL-PS-Br macroinitiator and PCL-PS Star-block copolymers was detected by GPC and 1H NMR. Results showed that the target star-block copolymers were successfully prepared.
