A series of aliphatic copolyesters was obtained from (R,S)-beta-butyrolactone and two isomeric hydroxy acids, 6-hydroxyhexanoic and (R,S)-2-hydroxyhexanoic acids. The reactions were conducted in bulk without catalyst. Electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MSn) was used for molecular characterization of these copolyester
