Polybutadiene-block-polyethylene oxide copolymer (PBD-b-PEO)

Description

PBD-b-PEO is true amphiphilic block copolymer, produced by anionic polymerization & consisting of a hydrophobic (PBD) and a hydrophilic block (PEO). n = butadiene content, m = total polybutadiene content, m = polyethylene oxide content.

Performance Properties

  • Ability to form self-assembled morphologies.
  • Having a PEO water-soluble block comprise a special and interesting category
  • PEO is a crystalline, neutral, and biocompatible material.
  • PBD can make the dual interaction (covalent & non-covalent) with drug moiety.
