Abstract

ABA block copolymers of styrene and methylphenylsilane were synthesized using a methodology based on 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-1-piperidinyloxy (TEMPO)-mediated controlled free radical polymerisation. Samples of alpha,omega-dihalo(polymethylphenysilane) were reacted with a hydroxyl derivative of TEMPO to give suitable macroinitiators for the controlled ('living') free radical polymerisation of styrene. The polymerisation of styrene was carried out in bulk at 130degreesC. Block copolymers were characterised using size exclusion chromatography and H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopy.
