Tandem catalysis and self-assembly: A one-pot approach to functionalized polymers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(equation presented) Side-chain functionalized polymers possessing terminal palladated SCS pincer complexes at each repeat unit were synthesized via ring-opening metathesis polymerization. These palladium centers function as both well-defined Heck catalysts and recognition units capable of quantitative self-assembly of pyridine-containing molecules. Exploitation of both the catalytic and self-assembly properties has led to the development of a controlled, one-pot tandem catalysis/self-assembly sequence for the synthesis of functionalized polymers.
