Computational design of pH-switchable control agents for nitroxide mediated polymerization
In the present work we use accurate quantum chemistry to evaluate several known and novel nitroxides bearing acid–base groups as pH-switchable control agents for room temperature NMP. Based on G3(MP2,CC)(+)//M06-2X/6-31+G(d) calculations with UAKS-CPCM/M06-2X/6-31+G(d) solvation corrections, a number of novel nitroxides are predicted to be suitable for controlled polymerization of bulk styrene at room temperature when deprotonated (i.e. negatively charged), while remaining inert when...[Show more]
