Abstract

A novel biodegradable thermo-responsive poly(aspartic acid) (PAsp) derivatives composed of succinimide and aspartate isopropyl amide were synthesized. The composition of PAsp derivatives was successfully controlled by changing feed mole ratio of isopropylamine to poly(succinimide) in aminolysis. The thermo-responsive property of the aqueous polymer solution was considerably changed by varying composition of PAsp derivative. Most notable change of thermo-responsive property was reversibility of the phase transition. The dominant factors for reversibility of the phase transition were discussed.
