SET-LRP’s High Chain End Functionality Exploited to Create Complex Architecture

Recent work published by the group in Polymer Chemistry utilizes one of the key features of single-electron transfer-living radical polymerization (SET-LRP): the high chain end functionality of the resulting polymers. In this work, led in our group by Adrian Moreno with contributions from Ryan L. Jezorek and Tong Liu, functional end groups of poly(methyl acrylate) (PMA) are exploited for esterification to generate PMA macromonomers and telechelics.

This work was conducted as part of a collaboration with the group of Gerard Lligadas at University Rovira i Virgili, Tarragona, Spain.
