In recent years polymerisation using organocatalysts has become an appealing alternative to more traditional metal-based catalysts. Conferring numerous advantages including low cost and ease of use, as well as the ability to precisely control the synthesis of advanced polymer structures, organocatalysts are increasingly used in polymer synthesis. Organic Catalysis for Polymerisation provides a holistic overview of the field, covering all process in the polymer synthesis pathway that are catalysed by organic catalysts. Sub-divided into two key sections for ease of use, the first focuses on recent developments in catalysis and the applications of catalysts to the full range of polymerisations that they have been utilised in; the second concerning monomers, arranges the field by monomer type and polymerisation mechanism. The book will therefore, provide a complimentary view of the field, providing both an overview of state-of-the-art catalyst development and also the best methodologies available to create specific polymer types. Edited by leading figures in the field and featuring contributions from researchers across the globe, this title will serve as an excellent reference for postgraduate students and researchers in both academia and industry interested in polymer chemistry, organic chemistry, catalysis and materials science.

Functional Polymers by Reversible Deactivation Radical Polymerisation Excerpt :

Synthesis of tailor-made functional polymers with controlled architecture is very challenging. The functional groups present in the monomer often either prevent polymerisation or lead to several side reactions. In this regard, reversible deactivation radical polymerisation (RDRP) techniques are useful tools to prepare macromolecular architectures with controlled molecular weight, architecture, and narrow dispersity. This book delineates the advances in the area of RDRP to prepare functional polymers for a wide range of applications like in self-healing, oil- and water-resistant coatings, controlled drug delivery systems and so on. The worthy contribution from renowned experts working in the area of RDRP makes this book invaluable to researchers in these important areas such as:Introduction and historical development of RDRP.Polymer-nanohybrid materials.Telechelic polymers with controlled end functionality.Functional polymers via a combination of RDRP and 'click' chemistry.Fluorinated polymers.Polymers for biomedical applications.The book will be of prime interest for polymer scientists as well as material scientists dealing with functional polymer synthesis for different applications. It will also be a good source of knowledge for researchers working on functional polymeric materials and their composites.

Click Polymerization Excerpt :

Click chemistry describes organic reactions which are highly efficient, regioselective and allow for mild reaction conditions. The archetypal click reaction of Cu(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) is used in many diverse areas and has been extensively developed for polymer synthesis, leading to the term of click polymerization. This technique enables the preparation of functional polymers with linear and topological structures that have the potential to be used in optoelectronics and biological fields. Edited by world renowned experts, Click Polymerization is the first book to comprehensively summarize this approach to polymer synthesis consolidating all the different reaction types in one resource. From the basic knowledge through to the latest developments in synthesis, chapters include transition-metal catalysed and metal-free azide-alkyne click polymerizations as well as thiol-ene, thiol-yne and thiol-epoxy click polymerizations. The book provides an authoritative guide to click polymerization techniques for graduate students and researchers interested in polymer chemistry and materials science.

Anionic Polymerization Excerpt :

This book presents these important facts: a) The mechanism of anionic polymerization, a more than 50-year challenge in polymer chemistry, has now become better understood; b) Precise synthesis of many polymers with novel architectures (triblock, multi-block, graft, exact graft, comb, cyclic, many armed stars with multi-components, dendrimer-like hyper-branched, and their structural mixed (co)polymers, etc.) have been advanced significantly; c) Based on such polymers, new morphological and self-organizing nano-objects and supra molecular assemblies have been created and widely studied and are considered nanodevices in the fields of nano science and technology; d) New high-tech and industrial applications for polymeric materials synthesized by anionic polymerization have been proposed. These remarkable developments have taken place in the last 15 years. Anionic polymerization continues to be the only truly living polymerization system (100 % termination free under appropriate conditions) and consequently the only one with unique capabilities in the synthesis of well-defined (i.e., precisely controlled molecular weight, nearly mono-disperse molecular weight distribution, structural and compositional homogeneity) complex macromolecular architectures. This book, with contributions from the world’s leading specialists, will be useful for all researchers, including students, working in universities, in research organizations, and in industry.
