Life RAFT: A bulky methacrylate monomer, triphenylmethyl methacrylate (TrMA), was polymerized with reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) agents. Stereogradient polymers in which the isospecificity increased spontaneously as the monomer concentration decreased were formed by a polymerization-depolymerization equilibrium that can convert a(More)
In this study, the stereocomplexation between a novel stereospecific cyclic vinyl polymer, that is, cyclic syndiotactic poly(methyl methacrylate) (st-PMMA), with the complementary linear isotactic (it-) PMMA was investigated. Surprising new insight into the effects of the topology (i.e., end groups), size, and tacticity of the assembling components on(More)
A syndiotactic poly(methyl methacrylate) bottlebrush polymer has been shown to complex with C60 fullerene and assemble into nanoparticles that can be dispersed in polar organic solvents. This composite material was used as an electrode interlayer in organic solar cell (OSC) devices leading to enhanced device performance.
