Abstract

In an attempt to circumvent the limitations of poly(amino acids), the authors have recently prepared a series of synthetic pseudo-poly(amino acids). In these materials the conventional peptide bonds was replaced by a variety of 'non-amide' linkages. 'Backbone Modification' as opposed to 'Side Chain Modification' represents a new approach that has not yet been explored in detail. Preliminary results indicate that 'pseudo'-poly(amino acids) tend to retain the low toxicity often associated with conventional poly(amino acids) while at the same time exhibiting significantly improved material properties.
