Block copolymers in seconds: Catalyst-free, ambient-temperature click conjugation of individual polymer strands becomes possible using novel ATRP-derived cyclopentadienyl-capped polymers in an extremely rapid hetero-Diels–Alder cycloaddition with macromolecules equipped with electron-deficient dithioester end groups prepared by the RAFT process.
