Quantifying chloride binding and salt extraction with poly(methyl methacrylate) copolymers bearing aryl-triazoles as anion receptor side chains†
Copolymers of methyl methacrylate and aryl-triazole based anion receptors were quantitatively analyzed. Transfer of structural features (1 : 1 and 2 : 1 complexes) and Cl− affinities from the parent receptors was demonstrated. Cl−-induced cross-linking changed the polymer's hydrodynamic radius. Extraction of tetrapropylammonium Cl− from water to dichloromethane was enhanced over PMMA.
