A light-triggered strategy to functionalize nanodiamonds (NDs) with well-defined functional polymers is presented. The employed grafting approach is based on o-methylbenzaldehydes, which upon UV irradiation form o-quinodimethanes that undergo Diels-Alder reactions with dienophiles. A series of well-defined maleimide end-group functional polymers, i.e., poly(styrene) (Mn = 5800 g mol-1; D = 1.2), poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (Mn = 5800 g mol-1, D = 1.2), and poly(2-(2′,3′,4′,6′-tetra-O-acetyl-α-d-mannosyloxy)ethyl methacrylate) (Mn = 24 300, 39 000, and 58 800 g mol-1, D ≤ 1.3), were prepared via reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization of protected maleimide functional RAFT agents. After deprotection of the furan-protected maleimide end groups, the polymers were photografted to o-methylbenzaldehyde functional NDs and characterized in detail via infrared (IR) spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The grafting density decreases with increasing polymer chain length (6.9-3.8 μmol g-1). Moreover, the binding of the glycopolymer functional NDs to the lectin Concanavalin A was demonstrated with a turbidity assay. © 2016 American Chemical Society.

5 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.
