Cyclopentadienyl end-capped poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM-Cp, M n = 5400 g mol-1, PDI = 1.13) was synthesized via a combination of RAFT (Reversible Addition-Fragmentation Chain Transfer) polymerization and modular conjugation (characterized via Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) as well as Electrospray Ionization-Mass Spectrometry (ESI-MS)), and reacted with untreated Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTs) as dienophiles in a Diels-Alder reaction with PNIPAM-Cp (diene) at ambient temperature in the absence of any catalyst. The obtained stimuli-responsive hybrid materials display thermo-responsive behaviour evidenced via UV-VIS-spectroscopy and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS). The grafting density of the PNIPAM chains at the surface of the SWCNTs was determined via Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), Elemental Analysis (EA) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), to be close to 0.0288 chains per nm 2. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

12 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
11 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.
