Abstract

The quasiliving characteristics of the ring-opening polymerization of s-caprolactone (CL) catalyzed by an organic amino calcium were demonstrated. Taking advantage of this feature, we synthesized a series of poly (ε-caprolactone) (PCL)-poly(L-lactide) (PLA) diblock copolymers with the sequential addition of the monomers CL and L-lactide. The block structure was confirmed by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and gel permeation chromatography analysis. The crystalline structure of the copolymers was investigated by differential scanning calorimetry and wide-angle X-ray diffraction analysis. When the molecular weight of the PLA block was high enough, phase separation took place in the block copolymer to form PCL and PLA domains, respectively.
