Cyclodextrin-centred star polymers synthesized via a combination of thiol-ene click and ring opening polymerization.


PMID 22767077

Abstract

The synthesis of cyclodextrin-centred star polymers via thiol-ene addition of per-6-thio-β-cyclodextrin (CD-(SH)(7)) with vinyl terminated polymers is described. The obtained thiol-ene product was employed as an initiator for ring opening polymerization (ROP) of ε-caprolactone (ε-CL).
