Abstract. Poly(2-oxazolines) were first synthesized in the 1960s by polymerisation of cyclic imino ethers. Now these polymers attract significant attention of researchers because of the possibilities to prepare various functionalised macromolecules of different architecture and their high biocompatibility. Methyl, ethyl, n-propyl and isopropyl derivatives of poly(2- oxazolines) are soluble in water. Some pharmaceutical applications of water-soluble poly(2- oxazolines) are considered in this mini-review. Attention is paid to the application of poly(2- oxazolines) for the preparation of solid dosage forms (tablets and films), mucus-penetrating nanoparticles, mucoadhesive derivatives, as well as solid drug dispersions and iodophors with antimicrobial properties.


Key words. poly(2-oxazolines), water-soluble polymers, drug delivery, mucoadhesion, nanoparticles, solid dispersions, iodophors
