Efficient Divergent Synthesis of Dendronized Polymers with Extremely High Molecular Weight: Structural Characterization by SEC-MALLS and SFM and Novel Organic Gelation Behavior

Yoshida, Masaru; Fresco, Zachary M; Ohnishi, Satomi; Frechet, Jean


High molecular weight poly(p-hydroxystyrene) (PHS) was dendronized in high yield by the divergent grafting of aliphatic polyester dendrons using acetal and ketal protected anhydride derivatives of bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid. Relatively low polydispersities (PDI = 1.1-1.3) were maintained throughout the dendronization process. Detailed characterization of a series of these polymers by size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and SEC with multi-angle laser light scattering (SEC-MALLS) clearly...[Show more]
