Copolymers of 2-hydroxyethylacrylate and 2-methoxyethyl acrylate by nitroxide mediated polymerization: Kinetics, SEC-ESI-MS analysis and thermoresponsive properties

Hoogenboom, R., Zorn, A. M., Keul, H., Barner-Kowollik, C., & Moeller, M. (2012) Copolymers of 2-hydroxyethylacrylate and 2-methoxyethyl acrylate by nitroxide mediated polymerization: Kinetics, SEC-ESI-MS analysis and thermoresponsive properties. Polymer Chemistry, 3(2).

The nitroxide mediated copolymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate (HEA) and 2-methoxyethyl acrylate (MEA) is reported. The copolymerization kinetics followed the persistent radical model and revealed the formation of well-defined ideal random copolymers (r HEA = 0.93 ± 0.09; r MEA = 0.95 ± 0.09). SEC-ESI-MS proved the presence of both the initiation fragment and SG1 as chain ends of the polymers. The cloud point temperature of the copolymers increased from 5 °C and 60 °C with increasing HEA content from 0% to 70% and they are discussed in relation to both monomer and end-group structure. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

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.
