Lactose substituted styrene monomer, N-(p-vinylbenzyl)-D-lactonamide(VLA) was prepared by coupling the lactose lactone with p-vinylbenzylamine. The carboxyl group of biotin was activated with N-hydroxysuccinimide in the presence of N, N'-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide. Subsquently, biotin substituted styrene monomer, N-(p-vinylbenzyl)-biotinamide(VBA) was prepared by amidation of the activated biotin with p-vinylbenzylamine. Poly(vinylbenzylactonamide-co-vinylbenzylbiotinamide), p(VLA-co-VBA) were synthesized through radical polymerization from the synthetic monomers(VLA-VBA) by using various mole ratio. The percentages of yield were 67~71%. The copolymers were found amphlphilic which had hydrophilic lactose, hydrophobic vinylbenzyl and biotin site within the structure. IR and $^{13}C-NMR$ analysis on the monomers and copolymer were carried out.
