Abstract

Well-defined polymeric structures were easily generated through living polymerization systems, in particular, living radical polymerizations. The polymeric precursors with orthogonal functionalities were subsequently clicked together with single or double (combinatorial) click reactions, such as the copper-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloadditions (CuAAC) and Diels–Alder reactions, to create a wide variety of linear and nonlinear terpolymers.
