The vinyl ester-type glycomonomer 6-O-vinyladipoyl-d-glucopyranose was polymerized in water and alcohol solutions. In all cases, long polymerization times were necessary to achieve reasonable conversions. Depending on the nature of the solvent, polydisperse glycopolymers were obtained possessing a molecular weight ranging between 10,000 and 122,000 Da (PS equivalent). Higher alcohols appeared to act as chain transfer agents and oligomers with DPn between 2 and 6 were indeed obtained when 2-propanol was the solvent. Also, thorough oxygen removal from the reaction mixture proved to be essential for the success of the experiment, plain nitrogen sparging being ineffective in most cases. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.

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.
