Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Novel well-defined amphiphilic poly(d-lactide)-b-poly(N,N-dimethylamino-2-ethyl methacrylate) (PDLA-b-PDMAEMA) and poly(l-lactide)-b-poly(N,N-dimethylamino-2-ethyl methacrylate) (PLLA-b-PDMAEMA) copolymers were obtained. The synthesis strategy consisted of a three-step procedure: (i) controlled ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of (d- or l-)lactide initiated by Al(OiPr)3, followed by (ii) quantitative conversion of the polylactide (PLA) hydroxyl end-groups with bromoisobutyryl bromide and (iii) atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of DMAEMA. The PLA block molecular weight was kept below 5000 g/mol. The macromolecular parameters of the (co)polymers were determined by 1H NMR spectroscopy and size exclusion chromatography (SEC). The stereocomplexes of PDLA-b-PDMAEMA/PLLA-b-PDMAEMA diblock copolymers were prepared via solvent casting. The stereocomplex formation was evidenced by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. The obtained stereocomplexes had melting temperature of about 65 °C above that of the individual copolymers and exhibited diffraction patterns assigned to the stereocomplex crystallites. In addition, for the first time it was shown that the replacement of one of the PLA partners with high molecular weight PLLA or PDLA did not hamper the stereocomplex formation. The presence of PDMAEMA blocks proved to impart hydrophilicity of the synthesized copolymers and related stereocomplexes, as determined by static water contact angle measurements.
