Abstract

In this paper, we report the synthesis and characterization of a well-controlled and acid degradable poly(acetal) which can adsorb strongly to the surface of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). These polymers, generated via acyclic diene metathesis (ADMET), incorporate pendant pyrene groups that are well-known to associate strongly to CNTs by noncovalent interactions. Films and solutions of the polymer were degraded through the controlled addition of aqueous hydrochloric acid in ethanol. The polymer's ability to adsorb to and be removed from a CNT film was also evaluated.
