Condensation Step Growth   Polymerization of A-B or AA/BB Monomers 3. Modification of Preformed Polymers Polysaccharides Peptides and Proteins   Synthetic Precursors

Slide 2

Current Strategies in Polymer Synthesis Objectives: Precise Macromolecular Design 1 . Control of: Molecular Weight Molecular Weight Distribution Composition Sequence of rehash units Stereochemistry 2.  Versatility

Slide 3

Free Radical Initiated Polymerization Classical Free Radical Process Applied to extensive variety of monomers Broad extent of test conditions Molecular weight can be controlled Mw/Mn > 1.5  2.0  Statistical arrangements and groupings Little stereochemical control

Slide 4

Anatomy of Addition Polymerizations Initiation Generation of dynamic initiator Reaction with monomer to frame developing chains Propagation Chain expansion by incremental monomer expansion Termination Conversion of dynamic developing chains to latent polymer Chain Transfer of dynamic developing site by ending one chain and reinitiating another chain.
