Polyisobutylene supports—a non-polar hydrocarbon analog of PEG supports Academic Article uri icon


  • Synthetic routes to terminally functionalized polyisobutylene oligomers useful as supports in synthesis and catalysis are discussed and described. Such hydrocarbon polymers serve as highly soluble non-polar analogs of well known poly(ethylene glycol) supports for synthesis and catalysis with the difference that they are separated after a reaction by an extraction with alkane solvent. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
