Abstract

The one-pot aminolysis/thiol-ene chain-end modification between a well-defined trithiocarbonate-functionalized poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (DP n = 13 and PDI = 1.06) and N-phenyl maleimide has been investigated using triethylphosphite (P(OEt) 3) as a coreagent. A quantitative chain-end functionalization has been obtained as shown by 1H NMR spectroscopy and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry.
