The first-example of synthesis of α-aldehyde, α′-allyloxy heterobifunctionalized poly(ε-caprolactones), and poly(methyl methacrylate)s is reported employing appropriately substituted ROP and ATRP initators derived from commercially available 4,4′-bis(4-hydroxyphenyl) pentanoic acid. The usefulness of “clickable” heterobifunctionality on polymers is demonstrated by carrying out double metal-free click reactions such as aldehyde-aminoxy and thiol-ene reactions. Polymers possessing clickable α,α′-heterobifunctional groups represent a valuable precursor for synthesis of Y-shaped miktoarm and star copolymers.
