Synthesis of well-defined polystyrenes containing adamantyl side chain

Shingo Kobayashi, Takashi Ishizone

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Anionic polymerization of styrene derivatives para-substituted with adamantyl groups, 4-(1-adamantyl)styrene and 4-(1-adamantyl)-a-methylstyrene, proceeded quantitatively to afford well-defined polymers. We also attempted to introduce adamantyl group into the phenyl ring of polystyrenes by treatment with adamantyl triflate. The resulting polymers had significantly high Tg and thermal stability due to the introduced adamantyl moieties.
