Self-Immolative Bottlebrush Polypentenamers and their Macromolecular Metamorphosis

preprint
submitted on 22.05.2019 and posted on 23.05.2019 by William Neary, Justin Kennemur
The complete depolymerization of a polypentenamer bottlebrush backbone and the kinetic principles involved are discussed. The deconstruction of the bottlebrush occurs from end-to-end in a self-immolative fashion producing individual linear grafts. The phenomenon paints a clearer picture on the original bottlebrush design. Architecture transformations from bottlebrush to linear to star polymers through facile means is explored.
