Brominated Polystyrenes and Bromoalkylated Resins

Chemfiles Volume 3 Article 4

Brominated polystyrene is a core matrix for the preparation of various functionalized polystyrene resins for SPPS and SPOS. The brominated polymer can be derivatized by Suzuki coupling reactions(1) or lithiation followed by reaction with electrophiles.(2) Acylation of bromoalkylated supports may be accomplished using the carboxylic acid cesium salts in the presence of KI.(3)
