PEG-b-PLA

Congratulations to Christian Agatemor! His paper on the role of tacticity (the relative positions of stereocentres in a polymer chain) in the properties of amphiphilic block copolymers has been accepted for publication in Biomacromolecules. The work details the synthesis and characterization of a series of poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(lactic acid) star where we have systematically varied the stereoregularity of the poly(lactic acid) block. The results are interesting, especially the effects on critical micelle concentrations measured through pyrene fluorescence.
