New Work Uses Cheaper TREN as Ligand for SET-LRP

The group has published a new paper in Polymer Chemistry. The work examines the replacement of Me6-TREN, a common ligand for SET-LRP, by TREN, which is 80 times cheaper. It is shown that high chain end functionality and controlled polymer growth can be achieved in a diverse range of water-organic solvent mixtures, further reducing the cost of SET-LRP for large-scale application.

The work was led in our group by Adrian Moreno and Silvia Grama, as part of a collaboration with the group of Gerard Lligadas at University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain.
