Various copolymers with pendant primary amino groups and narrow MWDs have been synthesized by living cationic polymerization in the presence of an added base. A key step of the synthesis is polymerization of a phthalimide-containing vinyl ether, from which nearly monodispersed polymers have never been obtained. Recently we found that base-stabilized living system realize its living cationic polymerization, giving well-defined polymers with a very narrow MWD (Mw/Mn ≤ 1.1). The formation of ion complex of the product polymers with carboxy-containing polymers yielded novel types of self-assemblies with the size of 30-50 um. Furthermore, the amino-type copolymers were compared with various polymers with other polar functional groups that can form hydrogen bondings.
