We also explored the need for experimental rigor in several aspects of the preparations and have identified a set of convenient reaction conditions that provide polymer products that retain the aforementioned desirable characteristics.
These polymerizations proceed rapidly at room temperature and without the need for tin-based catalysts to provide PEG-b-PLGAs suitable for use in biomedical investigations. Introduction Polyesters synthesized from ring-opening polymerization ROP of cyclic ester 1 monomers [lactones and dilactones diolides ] have found wide application in the fields of drug delivery microparticles, nanoparticles, or micelles , 2 tissue engineering sutures and other biodegradable implants , 3 , 4 medical devices, 5 and single-use plastics 6 because of their biocompatibility and biodegradability.
The most extensively studied of these polyesters are poly lactic acid PLA and poly lactic-co-glycolic acid PLGA , the homopolymer of lactide 1 or random copolymer of 1 and glycolide 2 , respectively.
The importance of PLGA microstructure has been demonstrated in a study of polyester hydrolytic degradation by Meyer and coworkers. The observed difference in degradation rates was attributed to the difference in the rate of nucleophilic attack at the less sterically hindered glycolic carbonyls present in the blocks of glycolic repeat units.
Controlled homopolymerization of glycolide 2 is challenging because of the low solubility of both the monomer and resulting poly glycolic acid PGA homopolymer or block copolymers in common organic solvents.
Copolymerization of glycolide 2 and lactide 1 provides an effective way to modify the chemical and physical properties of these polyesters for various applications, and PLGAs that comprise up to a ratio of lactic to glycolic units are of practical interest.
However, we are unaware of any protocols for random copolymerization of glycolide 2 and lactide 1 that produce PLGAs having well-controlled molecular weights and narrow PDIs while minimizing the sequence length of the lactic and glycolic repeat units. This largely reflects differences in reactivity and solubility of these two monomers. This adversely affects the solubility and PDI of the copolymer.
Melt copolymerization of glycolide 2 and lactide 1 has often been used to prepare PLGA with high glycolic content.Tirrell, Macromolecules, 50, Thomas, eds.
