Direct nitroxide mediated (co)polymerization of 4-vinylphenylboronic acid as route towards sugar sensors

Author affiliations

Abstract

The controlled polymerization of the unprotected, commercially available, 4-vinylphenylboronic acid (4-VBA) monomer is reported by nitroxide mediated polymerization. The glucose responsive pH window of poly(4-VBA) is reported based on turbidimetry. Finally, poly(4-VBA) polymeric pH sensors have been developed by the incorporation of solvatochromic dyes.
