Abstract

A novel route to cross-linked and functionalized random copolymers using a rapid, one-step, and orthogonal copolymer cross-linking/functionalization strategy has been developed. Random terpolymers possessing high concentrations of pendant alkyl chains and either (1) palladated-pincer complexes and diaminopyridine moieties (DAD hydrogen-bonding entities) or (2) palladated-pincer complexes and cyanuric wedges (ADAADA hydrogen-bonding entities) have been synthesized using ring-opening metathesis polymerization. Non-covalent cross-linking of the resultant copolymers using a directed functionalization strategy leads to dramatic increases in solution viscosities for cross-linked polymers via metal-coordination while only minor changes in viscosity were observed when hydrogen-bonding motifs were employed for cross-linking. The cross-linked materials could be further functionalized via self-assembly by employing the second recognition motif along the polymeric backbones giving rise to highly functionalized materials with tailored cross-links. This novel non-covalent polymer cross-linking/functionalization strategy allows for rapid and tunable materials synthesis by overcoming many difficulties inherent to the preparation of covalently cross-linked polymers.
