Abstract

The enormous potential of enzymes has been recently applied to polymer material synthesis and modifications. This recent application has made biocatalysis a popular topic for polymeric research in academia and industry. Enzyme catalysis has provided a new synthetic strategy for useful polymers most of which are otherwise very difficult to produce by conventional chemical catalysis. This paper overviews our recent work on the use of a variety of enzymes in the synthesis of novel pegylated multifunctional polymers for applications in drug and gene delivery.
