4, 4′-(Adipyldioxyethyoxy) dibenzoic acid (la), 4, 4′-(sebacoyldioxyethyoxy ) dibenzoic acid(lb) and 4,4′-(benzoyldioxyethyoxy)dibenzoic acid(lc) were synthesized and converted into mixed anhydrides by the reaction with acetic anhydride. Poly ( esteranhydride)s 2a, 2b and 2c were yielded by subsequent melt polycondensation. Their chemical structures were confirmed by 1H NMR, IR, UV and elemental analysis. In vitro degradation of poly(ester-anhydride)s in phosphate buffer solution at 37 °C was determined. Drug release profile of Ciprofloxacin was also studied.
