Grondahl, Lisbeth, Suzuki, Shuko, & Wentrup-Byrne, Edeline (2008) Influence of a diene impurity on the molecular structure of phosphate-containing polymers with medical applications. Chemical Communications, 28, pp. 3314-3316.

We have demonstrated that the unacknowledged presence of almost 30% diene impurity in some commercial phosphate monomers had not only a significant effect on the molecular structure (topology) of a series of synthesized polymers but the instability of the ester functionalities during these polymerizations resulted in unexpectedly complex co-polymer chemistry.

15 citations in Scopus
16 citations in Web of Science®
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
