Advances in hybrid polymers using controlled living radical polymerisation

Wednesday, 22 June 2016

Hybrid organic-inorganic materials comprised of well-defined polymers have been widely recognised for a variety of applications due to their extraordinary properties based on the combination of the different building compositions.

During the past decades, many kinds of well-defined hybrid polymers with a variety of architectures have been constructed by polymerisation in the presence of inorganic compositions, or by the coupling reaction of functional polymers with inorganic nanoparticles.

Different techniques will be discussed

Thus, techniques could be utilised for the preparation of well-defined organic-inorganic hybrid polymers, including controlled living radical polymerisations (CLRP), such as atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP) and reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerisation. Organic-inorganic hybrid polymers based on polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS), poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS), silica nanoparticles, graphene, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and fullerene will be discussed in this paper.

The study is published in: Polymer Chemistry, Issue 24, 2016.
