Orthogonal Click Postfunctionalization of Alternating Copolymers Prepared by Nitroxide-Mediated Polymerization.

Nitroxide-mediated polymerization (NMP) was applied to prepare alternating copolymers using 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoroisopropyl acrylate (HFIPA) 1 and ((6-trimethylsilyl)-hex-5-yn-1-yl)vinyl ether (THVE) 2 as monomers. The alternating sequence of the resulting poly(HFIPA-alt-THVE) 3 was proved by using tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) and further supported by 1… CONTINUE READING
