A supramolecular ABC-type miktoarm star polymer was prepared using a Hamilton wedge (HW) mid-chain functionalized polyethylene glycol-b-polystyrene (PEG-HW-PS) block copolymer and an α-cyanuric acid (CA) chain-end functional linear homopolymer poly-(n-butylacrylate) (CA-PnBA). The PEG-HW-PS element prepared via a combination of atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and copper-catalyzed azide alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) (Mn = 13,700 g mol−1, PDI = 1.04). The CA-PnBA strand was synthesized via reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization (Mn = 11,300 g mol−1, PDI = 1.06). The quantitative formation of a well-defined supramolecular ABC-type miktoarm star polymer was unambiguously proven via proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) spectroscopy, diffusion ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) analyses.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
