Abstract

Step-growth polymerization enables future technologies and molecular design of diverse macromolecular architectures ranging from tailored long-chain branching to segmented block copolymers. Scientists and engineers continue to advance the traditional families of step-growth polymers with novel synthetic strategies, unique processing scenarios, and tailored interfaces. Many step-growth polymers impart sustainability into emerging technologies, including bio-derived monomers and biodegradable compositions. New reaction pathways including Michael addition reactions, ionene polyelectrolytes, and click modification strategies have reenergized this field. This chapter focuses on the structure-property-performance relationships that continue to advance macromolecular science and engineering.
