Cobalt-Catalyzed Carbonylative Polymerization and Materials Therefrom

    Cobalt-catalyzed carbonylative polymerization (COP) of heterocycles is potentially a useful method for synthesis of a wide range of polyamides and polyesters (eq 1). The presentation willfirst focus on the development of this class of catalytic polymerization.[1] The evolving mechanistic understanding will be discussed based on our synthetic explorations and kinetic studies. The scope and limitation of the polymerization will be then discussed, including the suitable monomer types for the polymerization and the control of the microstructure and architecture of the polymer products. 

    The properties of the poly(b-alanoid)s (X = NR) synthesized via COP of aziridines will be then presented. The superb protein-adsorption resistance of the highly water-soluble members of poly(b-alanoid)s (R = Me or Et) is demonstrated by surface plasma resonance spectroscopy (Figure 1).[2]  

 

Figure 1. Representative SPR sensorgrams showing very low level of adsorption when the poly(ethyl-b-alanoid)-modified surfaces are exposed to biological fluids.

 

    Finally, oligo(b-alanine)s as a new physical crosslinking platform for thermoplastic elastomers will be presented. Only a few weight percent of oligo(b-alanine)s is necessary for physical crosslinking to occur. The oligo(b-alanine)s form filaments in the elastomeric matrix according to transmission electron microscopy.
