Abstract: The polymerisable glucose derivates, 6-O-vinyladipoyl-D-glucose was sythesized by chemoenzymatic transesterification, the novel thermosensitive glycopolymers, poly(N-isopropylacryamide-co-6-O-vinyladipoyl-D-glucose)(NIPAAm-co-OVAG) were fabricated free radical copolymerization from N-isopropylacryamide(NIPAAm) and 6-O-vinyladipoyl-D-glucose(OVAG). The structures and properties of the copolymers were confirmed by 1H NMR, UV-Vis absorbance and GPC. Moreover, the hydrodynamic diameter and gyration radius of the poly(OVAG-co-NIPAAm) in aqueous solution were studied by laser light scattering. Finally, we found that the poly(OVAG-co-NIPAAm) chains exist in aqueous as nearly spherical nanoparticles with diameter around 60 nm and the lower critical solution temperature(LCST) increased from 32 ℃ of PNIPAAm homopolymer to 39 ℃.
