Integration of metal-free ring-opening metathesis polymerization and organocatalyzed ring-opening polymerization through a bifunctional initiator

We demonstrate the first integration of metal-free ROMP and organocatalyzed ROP to provide entirely metal-free syntheses of block copolymers.

Understanding the ring-opening polymerisation of dioxolanones

Eliminating small molecules from dioxolane rings affords isotactic poly(mandelic acid), with competing chain transfer overcome through dynamic vacuum polymerisation.

Synthesis and crystallization behavior of regioregular-block-regiorandom poly(3-hexylthiophene) copolymers

Regioregular–regiorandom poly(3-hexylthiophene) copolymers, synthesized by chain-transfer polycondensation, show strong crystallinity due to their one-sided distribution of regiodefects.

Polyampholytic graft copolymers based on polydehydroalanine (PDha) – synthesis, solution behavior and application as dispersants for carbon nanotubes

We herein introduce a versatile platform of graft copolymers featuring a polyampholytic backbone and side chains of varying length and polarity using post-polymerization modification of polydehydroalanine (PDha).

About this collection

Polymer Chemistry is proud to present this 2019 Pioneering Investigators collection. This collection gathers the very best work from mid-career researchers who have firmly established themselves in the field of polymer chemistry and continuously publish creative, innovative work. The 2019 Polymer Chemistry Pioneering Investigators were individually nominated by members of the journal Editorial and Advisory Boards, and previous Pioneering Investigators, in recognition of their achievements as pioneers of the field.

Accompanying this collection is the Pioneering Investigators special issue, in which these articles will be formally published. This issue is scheduled for publication in mid 2019.
