Well-defined “clickable” copolymers prepared via one-pot synthesis

Author affiliations


Well-defined “clickable” homo- and co-polymers were synthesised using a living polymerisation technique. Specifically propargyl methacrylate was successfully homo- and co-polymerised using group transfer polymerisation, GTP. This one-pot synthesis was performed without the need to protect the acetylenic group. Finally it was confirmed that the acetylenic functional group was unaffected by the polymerisation by clicking with azide 4-azidobenzoic acid.
