Application

δ-Valerolactone (tetrahydro-2H-2-pyranone or δ VL) can be used as a monomer unit in the synthesis of poly(δ-valerolactone)s poly(conjugated ester)s via ring-opening polymerization.
It can also be used as a starting material in the synthesis of (+)-guadinomic acid , sodium δ-hydroxyvalerate , methyl δ-hydroxyvalerate , and 5-hydroxyvaleraldehyde.

Epidermal growth factor (EGF)-conjugated copolymer micelles were prepared from a mixture of diblock copolymers of methoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(delta-valerolactone) (MePEG-b-PVL) and EGF-PEG-b-PVL for targeted delivery to EGF receptor (EGFR)-overexpressing cancers. The block copolymers and functionalized block copolymers were synthesized using PEG

We present the synthesis of discrete functionalized polyester nanoparticles in selected nanoscale size dimensions via a controlled intermolecular chain cross-linking process. The novel technique involves the controlled coupling of epoxide functionalized polyesters with 2,2'-(ethylenedioxy)bis(ethylamine) to give well-defined nanoparticles with narrow
