Abstract

A catalytic process for synthesis of new polyesters with methacrylate pendant groups is presented. Thus, zinc succinate catalyzed reaction of succinic anhydride with glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) in dimethoxyethane gives linear oligoesters with low molecular weights (1380-2400 Da). The polyester formation takes place via simultaneous ring opening of the cyclic anhydride and oxirane units.
