Aliphatic polymers based on ester, urethane and amide linkages have been
used extensively for various biomedical applications which required biocompatibility
or biodegradability Most known synthetic strategies for polyesters are not
necessarily appropriate for synthesis of functional biopolymers with built-in
flexibility. The present invention is related to novel malonic acid based
functional monomers of the formula I and functional polymers (linear of the
formula II and branched of the formula III). Further the invention provides
synthesis of these materials.
