By use of a half-sandwich scandium dialkyl complex bearing cyclopentadienyl ligand with a phosphine oxide side arm [(C5Me4SiMe2CH2P(O)Ph2)Sc(CH2SiMe3)2] in the presence of [Ph3C][B(C6F5)4], the cyclocopolymerization of 1,6-heptadiene with styrene has been achieved for the first time to afford a new family of cyclopolyolefins containing six-membered ring methylene-1,3-cyclohexane, five-membered ring ethylene-1,2-cyclopentane and styrene–styrene units.

Graphene oxide assisted polymerization of aniline (GO-g-PANI) in the absence of conventional oxidant leads to the formation of a chemically grafted morphology. Polyaniline is attached to the partially reduced graphene oxide sheet, despite conventional ammonium persulfate assisted polymerization of aniline in the presence of graphene oxide (APS-GO-PANI). Highly crystalline structure of GO-g-PANI leads high electrical conductivity of GO-g-PANI which is 10 times higher than APS-GO-PANI.
- Construction of PIB-b-PDEAEMA well-defined amphiphilic diblock copolymers via sequential living carbocationic and RAFT polymerization

The synthesis of polyisobutylene-b-poly(2-(diethylamino)ethyl methacrylate) well-defined amphiphilic pH-responsive diblock copolymers via the combination of living carbocationic polymerization and RAFT polymerization is reported.
- Synthesis of hydrocarbon polymers containing bulky dibenzobicyclic moiety by ROMP and their characteristic optical properties

Article first published online: 8 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27133
The eight-membered cyclic monomer bearing a dibenzobicyclic moiety was polymerized via Ru-catalyzed ring-opening metathesis to afford high polymers. Hydrogenation of the obtained polymer quantitatively proceeded with a homogeneous transition metal catalyst under H2 atmosphere. Self-standing membranes of the nonhydrogenated and hydrogenated polymers showed high transparency in the region of >300 nm. Mechanical grinding of the polymers induced the formation of anthracene in solid state, transforming the polymers into blue-luminescent materials under UV irradiation.
- Conjugated polymers for the fluorescent detection of nitroaromatics: Influence of side-chain sterics and π-system electronics

Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pola.27143
The current study was undertaken with the aim of determining the relationship between a luminescent polymer structure and its ability to detect nitroaromatic explosives such as TNT. Eight new polymers were studied and compared with data from prior studies.
