Abstract

Chemoenzymatic methods of making sugar-based polymers are disclosed as well as novel sugar-based polymers. In one embodiment, acylated sugars are copolymerized with coreactants to yield novel sugar-based polymers. In another embodiment, non-reducing sugars acylated with a compound having a terminal double bond are polymerized to yield novel sugar-based polymers.
