Title:
Anionic polymerization and polyhomologation: An ideal combination to synthesize polyethylene-based block copolymers

Zhang, H.; Alkayal, N.; Gnanou, Yves ( 0000-0001-6253-7856 ) ; Hadjichristidis, Nikolaos ( 0000-0003-1442-1714 )
Abstract:
A novel one-pot methodology combining anionic polymerization and polyhomologation, through a "bridge" molecule (BF3OEt 2), was developed for the synthesis of polyethylene (PE)-based block copolymers. The anionically synthesized macroanion reacts with the "bridge" molecule to afford a 3-arm star (trimacromolecular borane) which serves as an initiator for the polyhomologation. 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
