Ping-pong polymerization by allylation and hydroformylation for alternating vinyl alcohol–vinyl monomer copolymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Inspired by the enzymatic ping-pong mechanism, we designed a novel “ping-pong polymerization”, which employs allylation and hydroformylation in an iterative and alternating manner. Thus, alternating and regioregular vinyl alcohol–vinyl monomer copolymers possessing multiple hydroxy groups in a periodical manner were successfully synthesized.
