Enzymes in polymer chemistry

Lipase-catalyzed acetylation of methacrylic polymers containing OH-groups

  • 29 Accesses

Summary

In the present paper the synthesis of N-Methacryloyl-11-aminoundecanoyl-N′-(1-amino-2-propanol) and the corresponding copolymer with styrene is described. The stereoselective enzyme-catalyzed acetylation of the monomers and copolymers in the presence of vinylacetate by two lipases was investigated.
