- Facile and versatile platform for the preparation of functional polyethylenes via thiol-ene chemistry
Zeyun Xiao, Christopher W. Bennett and Luke A. Connal
Article first published online: 27 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27667
A modular approach to the preparation of functional polyethylenes is presented. Polycyclooctene polymers are prepared via ring opening metathesis polymerization. The internal alkene bonds of the subsequent polyclycooctenes are exploited using photochemical thiol–ene click chemistry. A range of branched, amphiphilic, and fluorinated polyethylenes are synthesized.

The partially fluorinated poly(arylene ether sulfone) multiblock copolymers with well controlled block lengths and high molecular weight were successfully synthesized by “one pot two reactions synthesis.” The Ionomers bearing perfluoro alkyl sulfonic acids, obtained by regioselective modification of multiblock copolymers, lead to highly nanostructured membranes with morphology and conductivity close to those of Nafion.
- Antibacterial poly(ethylene terephthalate) surfaces obtained from thymyl methacrylate polymerization

Article first published online: 23 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27647
A method for fabrication of poly(thymyl methacrylate) brushes grafted on poly(ethylene terephthalate) films is described. The monomer is obtained from thymol essential oil. The modified surfaces are prepared by “grafting from” using atom transfer radical polymerization and present antibacterial properties against different bacteria strains.
- Oligomeric aliphatic–aromatic ether containing phthalonitrile resins
Matthew Laskoski, Arianna Neal, Mollie B. Schear, Teddy M. Keller, Holly L. Ricks-Laskoski and Andrew P. Saab
Article first published online: 23 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27659
A series of aliphatic containing phthalonitrile resins have been synthesized and characterized. The cured polymer shows good physical properties and low water absorption.
- Energy transfer through heterogeneous dyes-substituted fluorene-containing alternating copolymers and their dual-emission properties in the films
Hyeonuk Yeo, Kazuo Tanaka and Yoshiki Chujo
Article first published online: 23 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27652
A series of the alternating fluorene copolymers modified with pyrene or 9,10-diphenylanthracene and BODIPY at the cardo carbon based on the red-emissive donor-acceptor structure were prepared. From the measurements of the optical properties, the energy transfer efficiencies were evaluated. In summary, variable energy transfer efficiencies were observed between the side chains and from the side chain to the main chain. Finally, the dual-emissive polymers were obtained in the film states.
