The tendency of electron-deficient dithioesters to undergo hetero Diels-Alder cycloadditions is successfully used to generate polymer conjugates between a RAFT-polymerized poly(styrene) and a diene-terminated poly(ε-caprolactone). © The Royal Society of Chemistry.

113 citations in Scopus
110 citations in Web of Science®
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.
