The copolymerization of 4-pentenoic acid and (-)-perillic acid-based pentafluorophenyl active esters with N-phenyl maleimide (PhMI) has been studied. Depending on the choice of monomer and solvent, penultimate effects were witnessed that resulted in the preferential formation of periodic ABA monomer sequences. Alternatively, copolymers could be obtained in which the active ester containing monomers are separated by an average number of PhMI units (≥ 1) that is controlled by the monomer feed ratio. Post-polymerization functionalization with amines can be used to prepare functional polymers with defined monomer sequences. By Niels ten Brummelhuis. View the paper
