Biocompatibility, stability, and nonfouling properties have propelled polyoxazolines (POx) to the forefront of biomedical research (1) as a particularly attractive alternative to the gold standard polyethylene glycol in areas such as drug delivery, tissue engineering and medical implants. (2, 3) Moreover, unearthing POx dielectric character has opened new perspectives for this unique class of polymers such as in enhancing polymer solar cell efficiency (4, 5) and improving light emitting diode performance.
