|Issue Date:||14-Dec-2009||Citation:||Dai, S., Xue, L., Zinn, M., Li, Z. (2009-12-14). Enzyme-catalyzed polycondensation of polyester macrodiols with divinyl adipate: A green method for the preparation of thermoplastic block copolyesters. Biomacromolecules 10 (12) : 3176-3181. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1021/bm9011634||Abstract:||Enzyme-catalyzed polycondensation for the synthesis of block copolymers was reported for the first time. Thermoplastic block copolyesters containing poly[(R)-3-hydroxybutyrate] (PHB) and poly[(R)-3-hydroxyoctanoate] (PHO) blocks were enzymatically prepared by one- or two-step lipase-catalyzed polycondensation. Novozym 435-catalyzed reaction of PHB-diol (Mn of 3100 g/mol, GPC), PHO-diol (Mn of 3200 g/mol, GPC), and divinyl adipate gave block poly(HB-co-HO) (Mn of 9800 g/mol, GPC) with randomly arranged blocks in 55% yield. In two-step polycondensations, Novozym 435-catalyzed reaction of PHB-diol and divinyl adipate afforded 73% of PHB containing two vinyl ester end groups (Mn of 2700 g/mol, GPC), which was further reacted with PHO-diol in the presence of Novozym 435 to give block poly(HB-co-HO)s (Mn of 8800-14 200 g/mol, GPC) with A-B-type arranged blocks in 55-62% yield. The enzymatically prepared block copolyesters demonstrated Tm of 136-142 ° C and 142-153 °C and T g of -37 to -39 °C and were potentially useful thermoplastic biodegradable and biocompatible materials. © 2009 American Chemical Society.||Source Title:||Biomacromolecules||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/88865||ISSN:||15257797||DOI:||10.1021/bm9011634|
