Lederhose, Paul, Wüst, Kilian N. R., Barner-Kowollik, Christopher, & Blinco, James P. (2016) Catalyst free visible light induced cycloaddition as an avenue for polymer ligation. Chemical Communications, 52(35), pp. 5928-5931.

The current study introduces a tetrazole species able to perform a rapid, visible light induced nitrile imine-mediated tetrazole-ene cycloaddition (NITEC). Full conversion of the tetrazole species under mild, catalyst free conditions is reported. Importantly, the visible light ligation technology is applied as a method for the modification and ligation of polymers featuring the rapid, clean and exclusive formation of the desired cycloadduct.

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.
