Abstract Poly(styrene- ran -styrenesulfonic acid) and poly(styrene- block -styrenesulfonic acid) with low polydispersity were prepared using nitroxide-mediated living radical polymerization technique. Random or block copolymerization of styrene and neopentyl p -styrenesulfonate smoothly proceeded by AIBN/2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-4-diethylphosphono-3-azahexane-3-nitroxide initiating system. Transformation of the sulfonate ester to sulfonic acid was carried out by the reaction with trimethylsilyl… CONTINUE READING
