Som, Abhijit and Ramakrishnan, S (2004) Amphiphilic poly(meta-phenylene)s: A novel conjugated polysoap; A possible foldamer? In: The 228th ACS National Meeting, August 22-26, 2004, Philadelphia, PA.Full text not available from this repository.
Novel amphiphilic poly(meta-phenylene)s were prepared by an oxidative coupling approach. These polymers were synthesized to shed light on their solution properties with special emphasis on aggregation and folding behavior. The polymers were characterized by NMR spectroscopy and molecular weights were determined by Gel Permeation Chromatography using Universal calibration. Literature studies revealed that the backbone of these PMPs can be helical moreover, the light emitting properties of this conjugated polymer can be used as a handle to study the possible aggregation or self-assembling behavior. In this report we show the synthesis, characterization and preliminary aggregation properties that points out that one of the synthesized PMP behave as a polysoap.
