Project: Synthesis of poly(ethylene oxide)-polyamine block copolymers.

abstract
The objective of this project is the synthesis and evaluation of block copolymers, which are composed of a poly(ethylene oxide) block and a linear or branched polyamine block. Such block copolymers are anticipated to show a pH-responsive structure. Depending on the acidity of the medium they can occur as random coil or micels. Micel-forming polymers are of interest in the d evelopment of macromolecular drug delivery systems (gene therapy), as artificial enzymes, microreactors, etc.
