Control of nanostructure formation by a diblock-type supramacromolecule via biocomplementary hydrogen bonding has been achieved. Two different homopolymers, poly(4-trimethylsilylstyrene) and poly(styrene-d8), that are end-decorated with complementary oligonucleotides, i.e., thymidine phosphates and deoxyadenosine phosphates, were prepared by using the phosphoramidite method and blended successively. Association behavior in a blend solution was examined with NMR, and a cast bulk film obtained…

Nanostructured supramolecular block copolymers based on polydimethylsiloxane and polylactide
Hierarchical self-assembly has been demonstrated with diblock copolymers comprising poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) and poly(lactide) (PLA) with supramolecular, 4-fold hydrogen-bonding junctions. PDMS
Supramolecular mimics of phase separating covalent diblock copolymers
In this study, we explore the supramolecular association and phase separation properties of non-covalent analogues of polystyrene-b-polyethylene glycol (PS-b-PEG) and polystyrene-b-polyisoprene
Creation and control of new morphologies via supramacromolecular self-assembly
The concept of controlling supramacromolecular self-assembly and disassembly of two building blocks (of polymers) with end-functional groups is displayed. By self-assembling two building blocks that
Supramolecular Materials Based On Hydrogen-Bonded Polymers
Combining supramolecular principles with block copolymer self-assembly offers unique possibilities to create materials with responsive and/or tunable properties. The present chapter focuses on
Side-Chain Supramolecular Polymers Employing Conformer Independent Triple Hydrogen Bonding Arrays
A conformer-independent acceptor–donor-acceptor–acceptor array (ureidopyrimidine) is used which forms moderate affinity interactions with diamidopyridine derivatives to effect supramolecular blend formation between polystyrene and poly(methyl methacrylate) polymers obtained by RAFT which have been functionalized with the hydrogen bonding motifs.
Creation of Hierarchical Nanophase-Separated Structures via Supramacromolecular Self-Assembly from Two Asymmetric Block Copolymers with Short Interacting Sequences Giving Hydrogen Bonding Interaction
Polystyrene (S) having short poly(4-hydroxystyrene) (H) on one end (SH, Mw = 71.4K, ϕH = 0.04) and polyisoprene (I) having short poly(2-vinylpyridine) (P) on one end (IP, Mw = 57.6K, ϕP = 0.04) were
Bioinspired Photo-Cross-Linked Nanofibers from Uracil- Functionalized Polymers
In this study, we used electrospinning to fabricate nucleobase-functionalized and photo-cross-linkable poly[1-(4-vinylbenzyl uracil)] (PVBU) nanofibers. PVBU of high-molecular-weight (Mn > 250 550
