Tailor-made Synthesis

Nitroxide mediated controlled radical polymerization (NMRP) and Grignard metathesis polymerisation (GRIM) are used for diverse polymer chitecture guaranteeing control in molecular weight, low polydispersity and variable composition.

 

Examples are

 

I. Functional Homopolymers

Side-chain crystalline poly(perylene
bisimides): PPerAcr  
Side-chain amorphous
triphenylamines: PvTPAs
Main-chain conjuated polymers:
Poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HTs)

 

 

II. Block copolymers with single functionality
