Abstract

The preparation of [small alpha],[small omega]-hydroxy-telechelic poly(cyclohexene carbonate) from a dizinc catalyst is reported. The telechelic polymer, with an yttrium initiator, can be used to polymerize lactide, yielding new triblock copolymers, substantially derived from renewable resources.
