Conjugated block copolymers
Conjugated block copolymers: A new approach to synthesize rod-coil block copolymers via consecutive Kumada catalyst-transfer polycondensation and nitroxide-mediated free radical polymerization performed from a bifunctional initiator, TIPNOPhNi(dppp)Br was developed. The utility of the method was exemplified in a preparation of a model block copolymer, P3HTbPS with a narrow molecular weight distribution.
