Section 2 – Polymerization and The Polymer Chain Polymerization (Mechanism controlled) Step-Growth X n = 1/(1-p) Demonstrate Xn vs. p curve X w = (1+p)/(1-p) PDI = X w /X n = 1 + p Chain Growth Initiation, propagation, and termination Living anionic polymerization Demonstrate with PS and BuLi Immediate and simultaneous initiation Propagation of all chains concurrently X n vs p curve is linear (allows molecular weight control) Termination by quenching Telechelics – e.g. reaction with CO2 Block copolymer formation Styryl anion Modify end group by rxn with 1 eq. 1,1-diphenylethene
