Abstract
Hyperbranched polyglycerols (hbPGs) are one of the most popular hyperbranched polymers. Similar to its polyether analogue, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), hbPG exhibits excellent biocompatibility and immunogenicity. Moreover, owing to their facile synthetic nature and access to various architectures as well as the various functional groups, hbPGs have attracted significant attention as promising candidates for biomedical applications as well as polymer elctrolyte for battery application and polymeric support for catalysts. For these purpose, various kind of synthetic strategies and a huge number of PG derivatives are developed. In this thesis/dissertation, we cover the subject of “design and synthesis of stimuli-responsive hbPG”. First of all, the overview of the state of the art in hbPG research is given in part 1. After that, research results about “redox-degradable hbPG” and “light-responsive micelles of spiropyran initiated hbPG” in part 2 and 3, respectively.
