Abstract

The amino acid-based polymers have been attracting remarkable attention owing to their wide potential utilities for biomaterials. Recently, we found that the flanking benzyl ester groups of poly(β-benzyl-L-aspartate) (PBLA) can undergo a quantitative aminolysis reaction with various primary amine compounds, thus allowing the preparation of a variety of polyaspartamides with different functionality from a single platform polymer. The mechanism and kinetics of the quantitative aminolysis of PBLA has been investigated, focusing on racemization and α to β transition from the standpoint of higher-ordered structure of polymer strands.
