One-Pot Radical Polymerization of One Inimer to Form One-Dimensional Polymeric Nanomaterials

Advanced Materials


A one-pot polymerization strategy is put forward for producing 1D polymeric nanomaterials directly from a single inimer. An inimer bearing an NMP initiating site is polymerized in the presence of a RAFT CTA to form a pearl-necklace structure constituted of hyperbranched polymer “pearls”. The obtained 1D nanorods show high regularity evidenced by the long-range order in small angle XRD patterns and the formation of liquid crystalline phases.
