Preparation of polymers with controlled molecular architecture. A new convergent approach to dendritic macromolecules
The novel convergent growth approach to topological macromolecules based on dendritic fragments is described. The polyether dendritic fragments are prepared by starting from what will become theExpand

Controlled Synthesis of Polymer Brushes by “Living” Free Radical Polymerization Techniques
The preparation of a wide variety of unique polymer brush structures can be accomplished by “living” free radical polymerization of vinyl monomers from surface-tethered alkoxyamines or from tetheredExpand

Unimolecular micelles and globular amphiphiles: dendritic macromolecules as novel recyclable solubilization agents
The synthesis of dendritic polyether macromolecules based on a 3, 5-dihydroxybenzyl alcohol building block and having carboxylate groups as chain-ends is described. These novel macromolecules behaveExpand

A facile approach to architecturally defined nanoparticles via intramolecular chain collapse.
A novel approach is presented for the controlled intramolecular collapse of linear polymer chains to give well-defined single-molecule nanoparticles whose structure is directly related to theExpand

General Strategies for Nanoparticle Dispersion
Traditionally the dispersion of particles in polymeric materials has proven difficult and frequently results in phase separation and agglomeration. We show that thermodynamically stable dispersion ofExpand
