Abstract

Block copolymers of poly(methylphenylsilylene) and poly(methyl methacrylate) have been synthesized by condensation of alpha,omega-dichloropoly(methylphenylsilylene) with poly(methyl methacrylate)-lithium. The alpha,omega-dichloropoly(methylphenylsilylene) was synthesized by the Wurtz-type reductive coupling of dichloromethylphenylsilane using sodium in boiling toluene and poly(methyl methacrylate)-lithium was prepared by anionic polymerization of methyl methacrylate in tetrahydrofuran initiated by alpha-methylstyrene-lithium/LiCl. The structures of the block copolymers have been confirmed using size exclusion chromatography and NMR spectroscopy. (C) 1998 SCI.
