Poly(N-methylvinylamines) with secondary amines can form complexes with plasmid DNA (pDNA) and provide transfection efficiency in HeLa cells in the same order as linear polyethyleneimine but with higher cell viability. Chemical modifications of poly(N-methylvinylamine) backbones are performed to further improve transfection efficiency while maintaining low degree of cytotoxicity. In a first type of polymer, primary amino groups are incorporated via a copolymerization strategy. In a second one, primary amino and imidazole groups are incorporated also via a copolymerization strategy. In a third one, secondary amino groups are substituted with methylguanidine functions through a postpolymerization reaction. Thus, novel polymers of various molecular masses are synthesized, characterized, and their interaction with pDNA studied. Then, their transfection efficiency and cytotoxicity are tested in HeLa cells. Two polymethylvinylamine-based copolymers, one containing 20% of imidazole moieties and another one composed of 12% of guanidinyl units allow remarkable transfection efficiency of HeLa, pulmonary (16HBE), skeletal muscle (C2C12), and dendritic (DC2.4) cells. Overall, this work thus identifies new promising DNA carriers and chemical modifications that improve the transfection efficiency while maintaining low degree of cytotoxicity. [less ▲]

Due to their affinity for many supports, their pH responsiveness, metal binding capacity and polyelectro- lyte complexation, poly(vinylamine) derivatives have attracted attention for many applications including coatings, water purification, or gas membrane separation. Nevertheless, most of them possess only pendant primary amines despite the possible benefits of incorporating different amino groups along the chain. In this work, a straightforward and scalable synthesis route towards polymers bearing primary and secondary amines, as well as imidazole groups, is reported. The general strategy relies on the radical copolymerization of different vinylamides and vinyl imidazoles followed by the hydrolysis of the resulting poly(vinylamide) derivatives. Binary and ternary free radical copolymerizations of N-vinylacetamide (NVA), N-methyl vinylacetamide (NMVA) and 1-vinylimidazole (VIm) were investigated and the reactivity ratios for each copolymerization system were determined. Thanks to these values a series of statistical copolymers with predictable composition and low deviation over the chain distribution could then be synthesized. Finally, the acidic hydrolysis of the acetamide functions towards the corresponding amine was performed and optimized. Copolymers containing various pendant amino groups and with low dispersity in the chain composition could be obtained, which opens new perspectives for the above mentioned applications. [less ▲]

A series of novel fluorinated amphiphilic stabilizers of different architecture (diblock, grafted, or palm tree copolymers) were successfully prepared by reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer and used as stabilizers for the dispersion polymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) in fluorinated solvent, namely alpha,alpha,alpha-trifluorotoluene (TFT). The effect of the amount and the architecture of the copolymer on the size and the stabilization of the particles was studied. Whatever the experimental conditions, scanning electron microscopy showed the formation of submicronic (typically about 300 nm) spherical particles, with a narrow size distribution. The principal difference emerges from the concentration of surfactant. Indeed, at higher copolymer concentration, smaller and less aggregated particles were produced. These results were confirmed by dynamic light scattering but these measurements also revealed the presence of larger aggregates (1,5 micrometer). Furthermore, the surfactant properties of the copolymers were investigated by measuring the interfacial tension at the H2O/TFT interface, and the results were correlated to their stabilizing efficiency in the dispersion polymerization of HEMA.
