Synthesis of star- and block-copolymers using ADMET: head-to-tail selectivity during step-growth polymerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Control over molecular architectures obtained viaADMET polymerization is limited by the step-growth nature of this technique. A new approach to this polycondensation method is described allowing for the synthesis of diblock and star-shaped polymers with molecular weight control by using the selectivity of olefin cross-metathesis between acrylates and terminal olefins.
