- Analysis of diverse direct arylation polymerization (DArP) conditions toward the efficient synthesis of polymers converging with stille polymers in organic solar cells
Francesco Livi, Nemal S. Gobalasingham, Barry C. Thompson and Eva Bundgaard
Version of Record online: 25 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.28176
An effective OPV model compound, PPDTBT, has been utilized as a model system for the evaluation of ten DArP protocols derived from several classes of DArP on the OPV compatibility of DArP. The structural integrity of DArP PPDTBT has been investigated and compared with Stille counterparts. Flexible ITO-free and rigid ITO PSCs were prepared, showing—with precise reaction conditions—DArP can be a polymerization technique suitable for organic photovoltaics.
- Thermosensitive and photocleavable polyaspartamide derivatives for drug delivery
Xiao Du, Yibo Jiang, Renxi Zhuo and Xulin Jiang
Version of Record online: 25 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.28171
Temperature and light dual-sensitive polyaspartamide derivatives containing pendant hydrophobic photocleavable o-nitrobenzyl structures and hydrophilic long PEG chains are designed, synthesized and characterized. These facile nontoxic thermo/photosensitive polymeric micelles, as anticancer drug carriers for controlled release, show easy drug-loading process, faster drug release and enhancement of drug cytotoxicity under UV light irradiation.
- Dual-responsive reversible photo/thermogelling polymers exhibiting high modulus change
Qingqing Dou, Sing Shy Liow, Wengui Weng and Xian Jun Loh
Version of Record online: 24 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.28191
This work describes the synthesis of a novel photo-thermogelling polymer which exhibits a high change in modulus upon UV irradiation. The sol-to-gel transition is reversible and can be achieved by exposure to sunlight or light at higher wavelengths.
- Thermoplastic elastomers based on poly(l-Lysine)-Poly(ε-Caprolactone) multi-block copolymers
Jun Ling, Xiaoqing Wang, Lixin You and Zhiquan Shen
Version of Record online: 22 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.28187
Multi-block copolymers of poly(l-lysine), poly(N-ε-carbobenzyloxyl-l-lysine), poly(ε-caprolactone), and poly(ethylene glycol) were synthesized as good thermoplastic elastomers by combination of ring-opening polymerization and chain extension via l-lysine diisocyanate, which were electrospun into non-woven mats.
- Preparation of poly(ether ketone)s derived from 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid via nucleophilic aromatic substitution polymerization
Yusuke Kanetaka, Shinichi Yamazaki and Kunio Kimura
Version of Record online: 22 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.28193
From the viewpoint of reducing petroleum consumption, aromatic poly(ether ketone)s (PEKs) were prepared by the nucleophilic aromatic substitution polymerization of 2,5-bis(4-fluorobenzoyl)furan synthesized from biomass and aromatic bisphenols. The film was obtained by melt-press. The tensile strength, elongation at break and tensile modulus of the film was 78.0 MPa, 6.2%, and 1.2 GPa, respectively. Properties of the polymers were comparable to those of other high-performance polymers.
