Lang, Christiane, Voll, Dominik, Inglis, Andrew J., Dingenouts, Nico, Goldmann, Anja S., Barner, Leonie, & Barner-Kowollik, Christopher (2011) An access route to polyferrocenes via modular conjugation. Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics, 212(8), pp. 831-839.
The application of copper-catalyzed azide/alkyne cycloaddition to monomers containing a ferrocene unit leads to polyferrocenes with ferrocene in the backbone. Catalyst performance and kinetic studies of a model system comprising 1,1'-bis(azidoethyl)ferrocene and propargyl ether revealed the usage of CuI and DBU as the catalyst in DMF at 50 °C as efficient reaction conditions for the synthesis. The resulting polymers display molecular weight-averages up to = 10 000 and = 33 000. The polyaddition of monomers both containing ferrocene units led to polyferrocenes with between 4 000 and 11 000 ( up to 78 000). The present study thus provides a pathway to polyferrocenes based on modular ligation chemistry.
