Complex multiblock bottle-brush architectures by RAFT polymerization

Abstract

We describe the synthesis of unique multiblock-brush polymer architectures. The reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization R-group grafting from approach with addition of CTA ‘shuttle’ is used to access densely grafted bottle-brush copolymers. The combination of this technique with RAFT acrylamide multiblock methodology allows access to block copolymer grafted side chains that can be synthesised in a one-pot process. Instalment of non-functional linker blocks into the backbone gives microstructure control to yield multi-segmented bottle-brushes. The use of both approaches is demonstrated to access highly complex brush macromolecules, incorporating multiblocks along both the polymer backbone and grafted side chains.
