Ethylene/vinyl acetate-based macrocycles via organometallic-mediated radical polymerization and CuAAC ‘click’ reaction

Author affiliations

Abstract

Recent advances in organometallic-mediated radical polymerization led to unique α,ω-difunctional poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) and ethylene/vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA). A copper-catalyzed Huisgen dipolar cycloaddition ring-closure reaction was applied to these difunctional precursors paving the way to unprecedented PVAc and/or EVA macrocycles, and to their PVOH- and EVOH-counterparts after hydrolysis.
