Degradable fluorescent single-chain nanoparticles based on metathesis polymers

Abstract

We introduce the facile synthesis of fluorescent single-chain nanoparticles (SCNPs) based on chain-shattering acyclic diene metathesis (ADMET) polymers featuring self-immolative azobenzene motifs. An electrophilic alkoxyetherification is utilized to introduce the photoreactive moieties required for the subsequent chain collapse via UV-induced nitrile imine-mediated tetrazole–ene cycloaddition (NITEC).
