One‐pot, facile synthesis of well‐defined molecular brush copolymers by a tandem RAFT and ROMP, “Grafting‐through” strategy Academic Article uri icon


  • Two well-defined brush copolymers, PNB-g-PMMA, were synthesized by a one-pot, RAFT/ROMP, "grafting-through" method, without intermediate steps of isolation or purification. The controlled dimensions of the brushes were verified by atomic force microscopy. This strategy significantly simplified the synthesis of brush copolymers when compared with conventional methods.
