[New Paper]SET-LRP in the Neoteric Ethyl Lactate Alcohol

A new paper from the group has been published in Biomacromolecules. The paper reports  that ethyl lactate is an excellent solvent for the Cu(0) wire-catalyzed SET-LRP to produce both hydrophilic and hydrophobic polyacrylates that exhibit precise chain end functionality. These results will expand the table of SET-LRP solvents with a new green member of biological origin that is also biodegradable, and therefore are expected to contribute to continue expanding the use of SET-LRP in the in the field biomacromolecules, bioconjugates and other biology and medicine related disciplines.
