Abstract

Poly(lactic acid) microspheres were prepared by dispersion polymerization employing polymeric dispersants which are comb-like copolymers of poly(dodecyl methacrylate)-copolymethacrylate grafted with poly(lactic acid) prepared by atom transfer radical copolymerization and ring-opening polymerization. In this study, we discussed the effect of polymeric dispersant, such as branch chain number and distribution on diameter and diameter distribution.
