Well-defined heterotelechelic poly(styrene) carrying thymine/ diaminopyridine (DAP) (Mn,SEC = 9300, PDI = 1.04) and Hamilton wedge (HW)/cyanuric acid (CA) (Mn,SEC = 8200, PDI = 1.04) bonding motifs are prepared via a combination of controlled/living radical polymerization and copper catalyzed azide/alkyne "click" chemistry and are subsequently self-assembled as single chains to emulate-on a simple level-the self-folding behavior of natural biomacromolecules. Hydrogen nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) in deuterated dichloromethane and dynamic light scattering analyses provides evidence for the hydrogen bonding interactions between the α-thymine and ω-DAP as well as α-CA and ω-HW chain ends of the heterotelechelic polymers leading to circular entropy driven single chain self-assembly. This study demonstrates that the choice of NMR solvent is important for obtaining well-resolved NMR spectra of the self-assembled structures. In addition, steric effects on the HW can affect the efficiency of the self-assembly process. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

31 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
31 citations in Web of Science®

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.
