Bifluoride salt reported by K. Barry Sharpless and colleagues as a catalyst for sulfur(VI) fluoride exchange (SuFEx)-based AA-BB polycondensation reactions to prepare polysulfonates with diverse structures, narrow polydispersity, and excellent thermal and hydrolytic stability. Bisalkylsulfonyl fluorides, the AA monomers, were prepared from ethenesulfonyl fluoride (746959) and amines/anilines while bisphenol bis(t-butyldimethylsilyl) ethers, the BB monomers, were synthesized using tert-butyldimethylsilyl chloride (190500) and bisphenols. Varying the amines, anilines, and bisphenols results in assorted polymeric backbones, including those bearing orthogonal side chains for modification post-polymerization (e.g. by CuAAC). Reaction is amenable to scale up.
Polysulfates and polysulfonates possess exceptional mechanical properties making them potentially valuable engineering polymers. However, they have been little explored due to a lack of reliable synthetic access. Here we report bifluoride salts (Q
