Biomacromolecules. 2014 Jul 14;15(7):2426-39. doi: 10.1021/bm5002894. Epub 2014 Jun 13.We introduce a versatile ABC triblock terpoly- mer platform based on poly(ethylene oxide)-block-poly(allyl glycidyl ether)-block-poly(tert-butyl glycidyl ether) (PEO-b-PAGE-b-PtBGE) and subsequent functionalization of the PAGE segment with thiogalactose (hydroxyl), cysteamine (amino), and 2-mercaptopropionic acid (carboxy) by thiol-ene chemistry. These materials are used to prepare core-shell-corona micelles with a PtBGE core, a PAGE shell, and a PEO corona and sizes below 30 nm in aqueous media. Read More
