The influence of (macro) monomer functionality on reactivity in radical (co)polymerization

Conference Dates

May 20-25, 2018


Short-chain polyester methacrylate macromonomers with alkyl, tertiary amine, carboxyl, and hydroxyl end-group functionalities have been synthesized by ring-opening polymerization and subsequent modification. The functionality controlled in the synthesis is imparted onto the comb-polymer structures formed via radical polymerization, with an even greater diversity of materials accessible through copolymerization. This presentation will provide an overview of the materials produced and their applications, which range from degradable cationic flocculants for treatment of oil sands tailings to nanoparticles with tunable biodegradability for drug delivery.
