High molecular weight poly(N-methyl-B-vinylazaborine) – a semi-inorganic B–N polystyrene analogue†
We present the synthesis of a B–N analogue of polystyrene, poly(N-methyl-B-vinylazaborine) in high molecular weight (MW = 24.9 kDa). Furthermore, it was possible to prepare a copolymer with the C–C analogue. A thorough comparison between the polymers by NMR spectroscopy, TGA, DSC and GPC showed significant differences between these polymers.
