ABSTRACT:  N-Maleoyl L-amino acids (MIAA), i.e., N-maleoyl L-alanine (AMI) and N-maleoyl L-phenylalanine (PAMI), were radically polymerized in several solvents to obtain polymers having specific rotation of −32° to −42° and −144° to −164°, respectively. The number-average molecular weights of the polymers were generally small, 1.6×103 to 1.0×104, and the polydispersity was very large. Radical copolymerizations of MIAA (M1) were performed with styrene (ST, M2) and methyl methacrylate (MMA, M2) in THF at 60°C. The monomer reactivity ratios (r1, r2) and Alfrey-Price Q, e values were determined. Chiroptical properties of the polymers and copolymers were investigated, and asymmetric induction in the copolymerizations was discussed.
