"Clicking" polymers or just efficient linking: What is the difference?

Barner-Kowollik, C., Du Prez, F. E., Espeel, P., Hawker, C. J., Junkers, T., Schlaad, H., & Van Camp, W. (2011) "Clicking" polymers or just efficient linking: What is the difference? Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, 50(1).

The "click" trick: Many reactions are classified as click reactions even though some are limited to certain applications. Thus, there is danger that the term "click" will become meaningless over time and simply a synonym for "successful". To prevent this, the original click criteria are evaluated in this Essay specifically for the synthetic polymer field and a set of criteria are specified that distinguishes click from other efficient reactions.

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.
