The paper describes synthesis and colloidal properties of novel α-amino acid based polyesters with controllable hydrophilic-lipophillic balance. Polyesters based on glutamic acid and glycols of different nature were obtained via low-temperature activated polyesterification. Such polymers are able to form micellar structures in self-stabilized water dispersion. Peculiarities of Steglich rection in the case of polyesterefication and side processes were established and optimal conditions for polyester synthesis were determined.
