Diels-Alder reactions as an efficient route to high purity cyclic polymers
Glassner, Mathias, Blinco, James P., & Barner-Kowollik, Christopher (2011) Diels-Alder reactions as an efficient route to high purity cyclic polymers. Macromolecular Rapid Communications, 32(9-10), pp. 724-728.
A simple and efficient route for the synthesis of cyclic polymer systems is presented. Linear furan protected α-maleimide-ω-cyclopentadienyl functionalized precursors (poly(methyl methacrylate) and poly(tert-butyl acrylate)) were synthesized via atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and subsequent substitution of the bromine end-group with cyclopentadiene. Upon heating at high dilution, deprotection of the dieneophile occurs followed by an intramolecular Diels–Alder reaction yielding a high purity cyclic product.
