Linear–cyclic polymer structural transformation and its reversible control using a rational rotaxane strategy

Author affiliations

Abstract

Linear–cyclic polymer structural transformation and its reversibility are demonstrated by a simple but rational strategy using the structural characteristics of crown ether-based rotaxanes. The structure of a polymer containing a [1]rotaxane unit at one end was controlled by conventional protection–deprotection reactions, giving rise to a reversible linear–cyclic polymer structural transformation.
