Abstract

The titled diblock copolymers are synthesized via cobalt-catalyzed living carbonylative polymerization of N-alkylaziridines under moderate pressures followed by a deprotection step. The poly(beta-alanine) block is solubilized by the poly(beta-alanoid) block in chloroform and remains fully hydrogen-bonded in the form of a sheet-like assembly.
