Abstract


The synthesis of new block copolymers of oligo-2-oxazoline and linear oligo(ethylenimine), performed using a green protocol, is described. The synthesis follow a new strategy that allow a precise control the oligo(ethylenimine) backbone. The block copolymers are water-soluble and show an intrinsic blue fluorescence.

Keywords

Oligooxazolines, oligoethyleneimine, block copolymers, supercritical carbon dioxide.
