Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In our work, first a telechelic bromoisobutyrate-ended polyisobutylene macroinitiator was synthesized via quasiliving carbocationic polymerization and subsequent chain end modification. In the second step, quasiliving atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of poly(ethylene oxide) methacrylate using the macroinitiator was performed. When ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate was further polymerized on the formed triblock copolymer, a conetwork with a unique structure was obtained.
