General description

1,1,4,7,10,10-Hexamethyltriethylenetetramine is a polyamines additive, has been reported as an efficient reagent for the problematic Koenigs-Knorr glucuronidation.


1,1,4,7,10,10-Hexamethyltriethylenetetramine may be used as reagent in the synthesis of ideal linear random copolymers containing both vinyl polymer and polyester units in a single polymer chain. 1,1,4,7,10,10-Hexamethyltriethylenetetramine complexed with CuBr constitutes catalytic complex, used in the copolymerization of polyε-caprolactone with N,N-dimethylamino-2-ethyl methacrylate monomers by atom-transfer radical polymerization (ATRP). It may be used as catalyst in the aqueous surface-initiated-ATRP to grow poly(N,N-dimethylacrylamide) (PDMA).

All polymerization reactions are categorized into two large different families, chain- and step-growth polymerizations, which are typically incompatible. Here, we report the simultaneous chain- and step-growth polymerization via the metal-catalyzed radical copolymerization of conjugated vinyl monomers and designed monomers possessing...

Antibacterial polymers are potentially powerful biocides that can destroy bacteria on contact. Debate in the literature has surrounded the mechanism of action of polymeric biocides and the propensity for bacteria to develop resistance to them. There has been particular interest...

Adaptive and amphiphilic poly(N,N-dimethylamino-2-ethyl methacrylate-graft-poly[epsilon-caprolactone]) co-networks (netP(DMAEMA-g-PCL)) were synthesized from a combination of controlled polymerization techniques. Firstly, PCL cross-linkers were produced by ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of epsilon-CL initiated by 1,4-butane-diol and catalyzed by tin(II) 2-ethylhexanoate ([Sn(Oct)2]), followed by the quantitative...

A novel cationic polymer, poly[2-(tert-butylaminoethyl) methacrylate] (PTA), effectively kills various strains of bacteria with low toxicity to tissue cells. Graphene-based materials demonstrate exceptional electron transport capability, antibacterial activity, favorable nontoxicity, and versatile applicability. PTA can be grafted onto the graphene...

Novel comb-shaped amphiphilic copolymers based on methoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-b-[poly(ε-caprolactone)-g-poly(methacrylic acid)] (MPCL-g-pMAA), were synthesized via ring opening polymerization (ROP) and atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) for drug delivery systems. MPCL-g-pMAAs with various MAA repeating units self-assemble into a core-shell structure in...

We presents an article about a micro review of reversible addition/fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization. RAFT (Reversible Addition/Fragmentation Chain Transfer) polymerization is a reversible deactivation radical polymerization (RDRP) and one of the more versatile methods for providing living characteristics to radical polymerization.
