Poly(ß-hydroxyl amine)s are prepared from readily available small molecular building blocks at ambient conditions. These macromolecules can be transformed into main-chain cationic polymers upon quaternization of the backbone amine units. The modular and mild nature of the synthesis allows for incorporation of multiple (2-4) chemically distinct reactive sites in the polymer chain. Modifications of the reactive sites afford multifunctional polymers with tunable properties. The orthogonal nature… Expand
