Abstract

A vinylpyridine block copolymer was prepared by stepwise controlled/living radical polymerization with a novel bifunctional initiator, 4-(2- bromopropanoyloxy)-N-(p-methylbenzyloxy)-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine. The initiator was synthesized in a facile manner using commercially available p-xylene and 4-hydroxy-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine-1-oxyl (4-hydroxy TEMPO). Through stepwise atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of methyl methacrylate (MMA) and nitroxide-mediated radical polymerization (NMRP) of 4-vinylpyridine (4VP), the PMMA-b-P4VP copolymer was prepared with a wide range of the copolymer compositions. Microphase-separation was demonstrated in cross sectional TEM images of self-standing block copolymer membranes.
