The synthesis of poly-L-lactide, PLLA, prepared by ring-opening polymerization of L-lactide using aluminum isopropoxide as an initiator proceeds with a living character. This allowed us to synthesize copolymers composed of L- and D-lactide blocks. In a similar way block copolymers were synthesized using ε-caprolactone as a first and L-lactide as a second monomer.
