Influence of a diene impurity on the molecular structure of phosphate-containing polymers with medical applications
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.
