Tuneable pH-regulated supramolecular copolymerisation by mixing mismatched dendritic peptide comonomers

The co-assembly of oppositely charged phenylalanine-rich dendritic comonomers yields supramolecular alternating copolymers, whose stability and pH-triggered disassembly is tuned by mismatching a strong with a weak β-sheet encoded comonomer.

Facile synthesis of a conjugated microporous polymeric monolith via copper-free Sonogashira–Hagihara cross-coupling in water under aerobic conditions

Facile thiol–yne chemistry on a porous polymer monolith: the sulfur donors thus installed effectively take up Ag(I) ions, allowing for the catalysis of heterocyclization reaction in the solid phase.

Facile and cost-effective branched acrylic copolymers from multifunctional comonomers and multifunctional chain transfer agents

Branched acrylic copolymers were synthesised via facile conventional free-radical polymerisations taken to high conversion using comonomers containing 2-6 acrylate functional groups and chain transfer agents containing 1-8 thiol functional groups.

Efficient and selective molybdenum based heterogeneous catalyst for alkene epoxidation using batch and continuous reactors

A polystyrene 2-(aminomethyl)pyridine supported molybdenum(VI) complex (Ps·AMP·Mo) has been prepared, characterised and used as a catalyst for epoxidation of 1-hexene and 4-vinyl-1-cyclohexene (4-VCH) using TBHP as an oxidant.

Insights into the formation, structural properties and performance of RAFT polymerized L-phenylalanine anilide molecularly imprinted polymers

The enhanced performance of molecularly imprinted polymers prepared by controlled radical polymerization in terms of affinity, selectivity, capacity and mass transfer properties is shown here to correlate with pore structure parameters in their dry and swollen states.

Exploring the homogeneous controlled radical polymerisation of hydrophobic monomers in anti-solvents for their polymers: RAFT and ATRP of various alkyl methacrylates in anhydrous methanol to high conversion and low dispersity

RAFT and ATRP of nBuMA, tBuMA and MMA in anhydrous methanol (25–60 °C) without precipitation, yielding polymers with conversion up to 99%, Đ from 1.02 and DPn ≤ 800 units.

The effect of molecular weight on the porosity of hypercrosslinked polystyrene

Microporous polymers can be prepared by crosslinking polystyrenes, with the surface areas being dependent on the degree of polymerisation.

Entropically-driven ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ED-ROMP) of macrocyclic olefins prepared from deoxycholic acid to give functionalized polymers

The macrocycles shown were prepared, then polymerized and copolymerized by ROMP. This gave polymers with free OH or free CO2R groups. Treatment of the polymers having R = t-Bu with trifluoroacetic acid gave polymers with free CO2H groups.

Polysulfobetaine-based diblock copolymer nano-objects via polymerization-induced self-assembly

A zwitterionic polysulfobetaine-based macro-CTA is used for the synthesis of spheres, worms or vesicles via aqueous RAFT dispersion polymerization of 2-hydroxypropyl methacrylate (HPMA). These new diblock copolymer nano-objects exhibit high tolerance of added salt.
