A Versatile Synthesis Platform To Prepare Uniform, Highly Functional Microgels via Click-Type Functi

Get the full paper here: Macromolecules, 47, 2257 (2014). Advances in the understanding of microgel properties and exploitation of their full potential for applications require control of the extent and type of functionalization, while at the same time providing control of particle shape, that is, size and uniformity, and intrinsic particle properties such as hardness and degree of crosslinking. However, versatile and simple synthetic approaches to prepare highly uniform and densely functionalized microgels based on functional groups unsuitable for aqueous precipitation polymerization are still scarce. As an alternative platform approach, herein we report on the synthesis of uniform particle

Polyglycidol-Based Prepolymers to Tune the Nanostructure of Microgels

Get the full paper here: Macromolecules, 47, 1633 (2014). The use of prepolymers for microgel synthesis via miniemulsification allows predefining the chemical functionality and the nanostructure of microgels. We report on tailor-made polyglycidol-based prepolymers using three protected glycidol monomers (allyl glycidyl ether, AGE; ethoxy ethyl glycidyl ether, EEGE; and tert-butyl glycidyl ether, tBGE). AGE with its pendant double bonds serves as site for cross-linking or functionalization, whereas the EEGE and tBGE building blocks represent precursors for hydroxyl functionalities. Following the prepolymer approach, we design statistical and block copolymers to control the nanostructure of th
