Light induced polyethylene ligation

Author affiliations


We introduce a photoreactive polyethylene (PE) derivative, which upon light irradiation (λmax = 365 nm) can effectively react to form well-defined block copolymers with polystyrene and poly(methyl methacrylate). The herein introduced synthetic technology provides challenging-to-access polyethylene architectures based on a rapid and catalyst free photochemical ligation concept.
