A novel A2B3-type supramolecular polymer network was synthesized using two precision tailored building blocks: doubly-adamantyl end-capped poly(N,N-dimethylacrylamide) and a three-pronged β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) core. The polymers were prepared via reversible addition- fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization yielding molecular weights between 4500 and 42600 g mol-1 and molar mass dispersities between 1.2 and 1.4. The β-CD trilinker was synthesized using a 1,3-cycloaddition of tripropargylamine and β-CD-azide. The supramolecular networks were prepared in aqueous media and the host-guest driven self-assembly of the building blocks was demonstrated via 2D nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy (NOESY) and dynamic light scattering (DLS). The rheological behavior of the polymer networks was investigated using steady shear and oscillatory shear measurements. Thereby, the influence of the molecular weight of the adamantyl-functionalized polymers, their concentration in aqueous solution and the ratio of adamantyl and β-CD groups on the viscosity were systematically evaluated. Additionally, the temperature dependence and the disruption of the host-guest interactions by addition of competitive native β-CD and potassium adamantyl carboxylate were exemplarily demonstrated. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.

Search Google Scholar™
10 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.
