Abstract

Polyoxazolines of various architectures and chemical functionalities can be prepared in a living and therefore controlled manner via cationic ring-opening polymerisation. They have found widespread applications, ranging from coatings to pigment dispersants. Furthermore, several polyoxazolines are water-soluble or amphiphilic and relatively non-toxic, which makes them interesting as biomaterials.

This paper reviews the development of polyoxazoline-based polymers in biological and biomedical application contexts since the beginning of the millennium. This includes nanoscalar systems such as membranes and nanoparticles, drug and gene delivery applications, as well as stimuli-responsive systems.
