Well-defined amphiphilic block copolymers of poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) and poly(N-vinylpyrrolidone) (PNVP) were synthesized by cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP). The NVP polymerization initiated by poly(vinyl acetate) end-capped by the cobalt(II)acetylacetonate complex met the criteria of controlled polymerization, i.e., first-order kinetic in NVP, increase of the molar mass with the NVP conversion, and narrow molar mass distribution. Therefore, the length of the two blocks can be tuned by the [VAc]/[Co(acac)(2)] and the [NVP]/[PVAc] ratios for the synthesis of the macroinitiator and the polymerization of the second monomer, respectively. These amphiphilic PVAc-b-PNVP block copolymers were easily converted into the double hydrophilic PVOH-b-PNVP counterparts by selective methanolysis of the PVAc block. These two types of copolymers were prone to self-association into micelles in appropriate solvents. [less ▲]

An efficient procedure for the oxidation of 1,1-diadamantylamine with m-chloroperbenzoic acid (m-CPBA) to the corresponding sterically hindered nitroxide in high yield (72%) is reported. The corresponding styrene-based alkoxyamine was synthesized by an atom transfer radical addition (ATRA) reaction. Because of the bulkiness of the adamantyl substituents, the cleavage of the C−ON bond of the alkoxyamine occurred readily at temperatures below 100 °C. However, in spite of the low bond dissociation temperature of the alkoxyamine, the (co)polymerizations of styrene and n-butyl acrylate proceeded poorly. The results in this paper support the argument that the most important determinant in a nitroxide-mediated polymerization of styrene and acrylate is the ability to control the excess concentration of nitroxide in solution either by an inherent instability of the nitroxide or by the use of additives that destroy the excess nitroxide. Thus, for the 1,1-diadamantyl nitroxide case, and maybe more generally, while a lower C−O bond dissociation energy of an alkoxyamine moiety at the end of the chain may allow lower polymerization temperatures and faster reactions rates, it does not enable polymerizations to proceed to high conversions if the excess nitroxide is not controlled in some manner.

Well-defined poly(vinyl acetate) macroinitiators, with the chains thus end-capped by a cobalt complex, were synthesized by cobalt-mediated radical polymerization and used to initiate styrene polymerization at 30 degrees C. Although the polymerization of the second block was not controlled, poly(vinyl acetate)-b-polystyrene copolymers were successfully prepared and converted into amphiphilic poly(vinyl alcohol)-b-polystyrene copolymers by the methanolysis of the ester functions of the poly(vinyl acetate) block. These poly(vinyl alcohol)-b-polystyrene copolymers self-associated in water with the formation of nanocups, at least when the poly(vinyl alcohol) content was low enough. [less ▲]

Living radical polymerizations of acrylate are known to be difficult to achieve using TEMPO as a mediator. The stable free radical polymerization (SFRP) of acrylate tends to stop at low monomer conversion due to the accumulation of TEMPO in the medium as a result of unavoidable bimolecular termination. Rather than solving this problem by destroying the excess nitroxide using ascorbic acid or glyceraldehyde associated with pyridine as reported recently, high temperature initiators were used to slowly and continuously generate new radicals throughout the polymerization to consume the excess TEMPO molecules. Polymerizations of n-butyl acrylate initiated by the alkoxyamine unimer (1-benzoyloxy)-2-phenyl-2-(2′,2′,6′,6′-tetramethyl-1′-piperidinyloxy)ethane (BST) were performed between 130 °C and 134 °C in the presence of a series of high temperature peroxide and azo initiators. The best results in this study were obtained by the continuous addition of small amounts of di-tert-amyl peroxide throughout the polymerization. Under these conditions, the acrylate polymerizations fulfilled the criteria of a controlled polymerization process although the molecular weight distributions were slightly broad (Mw/Mn 1.5).

A redox initiating system was developed in order to bypass 2,2'-azobis(4-methoxy-2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile) (V70) as the initiator of the cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP) of vinyl acetate (VAc) in the presence of cobalt(II) acetylacetonate (Co(acac)(2)). It is indeed a problem to stock up with V70 because of needed storage at -20 degrees C during transportation. This paper reports on the controlled CMRP of VAc initiated by ascorbic acid combined with either lauroyl peroxide or benzoyl peroxide at 30 degrees C. Substitution of citric acid for ascorbic acid results in faster polymerization whereas the polymerization control is maintained. All these improvements facilitate the implementation of the vinyl acetate CMRP and open the door to the scale-up of the process. [less ▲]

The living-radical polymerization of n-butyl acrylate, moderated with TEMPO, is shown to proceed in a controlled fashion in the presence of a series of α-hydroxycarbonyl compounds with different organic bases. The best results were obtained with glyceraldehyde dimer in the presence of pyridine. These results further support the suggestion that the difficulty of polymerizing acrylate monomers in the presence of TEMPO is related to the excess buildup of TEMPO due to a small amount of polymer chain termination and to a lesser extent on the higher bond dissociation energy of the TEMPO acrylate bond relative to the TEMPO styrene bond at the chain's terminus.

Poly(vinyl acetate) chains end-capped by a Co(acac)(2) complex [PVAc-Co(acac)(2)] were prepared by bulk cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP) of vinyl acetate and used for grafting fullerene (C60) with four PVAc arms at low temperature (30 degrees C). A photoactive water-soluble poly(vinyl alcohol)/C60 nanohybrid was then prepared by hydrolysis of the PVAc arms of the nanohybrid. Because of photoactivity and very low cytotoxicity, this type of water-soluble nanohybrid is very promising for the photodynamic cancer therapy. [less ▲]

ortho-Quinones, such as phenanthrenequinone and 3,6-dimethoxyphenanthrenequinone, added with a catalytic amount of metal complexes, impart control to styrene polymerization via the previously reported quinone transfer radical polymerization (QTRP) process. In this study, compounds that mimic the dormant species proposed in the QTRP mechanism have been synthesized and tested as initiators in the presence of cobalt(II) acetylacetonate. These compounds, and particularly 3,6-dimethoxy-10-hydroxy-10-(l-phenyl-ethyl)-phenanthren-9-one, are effective control agents for the radical polymerization of styrene, in agreement with the recently proposed mechanism. Moreover, the induction period, which has been systematically reported in the presence of ortho-quinones, is no longer observed. The end capping of the polystyrene chains by the control agent has been confirmed by H-1 NMR analysis. [less ▲]
