      The synthesis of the title   compound labelled with carbon-14 in the polymeric chain is   reported. MAG-Taxol, laboratory code PNU-166945, is a synthetic   hydroxypropyl-methacrylamide copolymer bearing an aminoacidic   side chain linked through an esteric bound at the 2’ position of   the taxol C13 side chain. A three step sequence, starting from   the commercially available [14C]methacrylic acid, led to the   radiochemically pure final compound with a specific activity of   281 KBq/mg. The overall radiochemical yield was 20%.
