Synthesising catechol-functionalised polyether copolymers

Tuesday, 4 August 2015

Researchers developed a facile synthetic strategy for the functionalisation of well-defined polyether copolymers with control over the number and location of catechol groups.

Previously, the functionalisation of polyethylene oxide (PEO)-based polymers with catechols has been limited to functionalisation of the chain ends only, hampering the synthesis of adhesive and antifouling materials based on this platform.

High-yielded route to polyethers

To address this challenge, the researchers described an efficient and high-yielding route to catechol-functionalised polyethers, which could allow the effects of polymer architecture, molecular weight, and catechol incorporation on the adhesive properties of surface-anchored PEO to be studied.

The study is published in: Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry.
