A polyamine derivative was prepared from α-methylene-γ-butyrolactone. This method used Michael addition and lactone aminolysis followed by the nucleophilic substitution of the hydroxyl group by an azido group. The coupling of a lipophilic alkyne led to a polyamine that will be probed as a gene transfer agent.
