Chemical synthesis of poly(2-aminothiazole) in the presence of graphene oxide
2-aminothiazole (2-AT) is a heterocyclic amine which is biologically active in various ways. Thiazole ring is a part of numerous drugs  such as analgesic, antithrombotic, antiinflammatory or many more. Particularly interesting are its antimicrobial and antitumor properties. Besides all that, poly(2-aminothiazole) (PAT), that is conjugated polymer, has heavy metal sensing and selective concentration applications , anticorrosive properties. Therefore PAT is a promising polymer to study, however number of publications on this topic is limited.
