Abstract

Telechelic polystyrenes (PSt) are useful intermediates for the synthesis of various macromolecular architectures. However, surprisingly few attempts have been reported on the preparation of such polymers by quasiliving atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) so far. Herein, we report on the successful in situ synthesis of allyl-telechelic PSt via bulk quasiliving ATRP followed by direct allylation, not only in dichloromethane but also in a green solvent, benzotrifluoride. The quantitative transformations of the allyl terminals of PSt to hydroxyl and epoxy functionalities are also described.
