Nucleophile-mediated oxa-Michael addition reactions of divinyl sulfone – a thiol-free option for step-growth polymerisations

Author affiliations

Abstract

Triphenylphosphine and 4-dimethylaminopyridine promote the oxa-Michael addition reaction of alcohols and divinyl sulfone. Under solvent-free conditions, the reaction is particularly fast and allows for the preparation of polymers.
