Factors influencing the synthesis and the post-modification of PEGylated pentafluorophenyl acrylate containing copolymers
MetadataShow full item record
Copolymerization reactions involving oligoethylene glycol acrylate (OEGA) or diethylene glycol acrylate (DEGA) with pentafluorophenyl acrylate (PFPA) have been performed by reversible addition fragmentation transfer (RAFT) polymerization. The effect of the reaction conditions on the nucleophilic acyl substitution reactions of PFPA was studied using a model amine (furfuryl amine). The resulting PEG/PFP functional copolymers were then used as scaffolds to produce a library of polymers by reaction with a range of amines.

Production of acrylic acid through nickel-mediated coupling of ethylene and carbon dioxide - A DFT studyGraham, D.; Mitchell, C.; Bruce, M.; Metha, G.; Bowie, J.; Buntine, Mark (2007)The production of acrylic acid (CH2=CHCO2H) via homogeneous nickel-mediated coupling of ethylene (CH2=CH2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) is industrially unattractive at present due to its stoichiometric, rather than catalytic, ...
Thiol-Michael coupling chemistry: Facile access to a library of functional exo-7-oxanorbornenes and their ring-opening metathesis (co)polymerizationLiu, M.; Van Hensbergen, J.; Burford, R.; Lowe, Andrew (2012)The nucleophile initiated thiol-Michael reaction of a wide range of mono and multifunctional thiols with a novel acrylic exo-7-oxanorbornene is described. We highlight how this process affords ready access to a large ...
