1 dl/g. In typical compositions for preparing representative copolymers, the cyclic monomer, other than l-lactide, was I-caprolactone, trimethylene carbonate, or both. Useful molar ratios of l-lactide to cyclic monomers were 60:40, 62:38, 65:35, 68:32, 72:28, 76:24, 80:20, 84:16, 85:15, 86:14, 90:10, and 94:6. The copolymer chain was designed to have the l-lactide-based repeat units constitute about 95% of the crystallizable chain segments. These were expected to be randomly linked to one or two types of repeat units based on trimethylene carbonate and/or I-caprolactone.
