Pahnke, Kai; Haworth, Naomi L.; Brandt, Josef; Paulmann, Uwe; Richter, Christian; Schmidt, Friedrich G.; Lederer, Albena; Coote, Michelle; Barner-Kowollik, Christopher


We demonstrate a novel and ready to prepare thermoreversible hetero Diels–Alder dilinker on the basis of dithiooxalates, enabling the mild, rapid and catalyst-free linkage of diverse diene species under ambient conditions for applications in the fields of, for example, modular ligation, self-healing or recyclable materials and surface modification amongst others. The linker was studied using quantum chemical calculations, and experimentally in small molecular reactions via UV/Vis spectroscopy,...[Show more]
