Polymer hybrids

3.1. Development of new catalytic supports from functional polymers

New well-defined functional copolymers were synthesized and used as macroligand in atom transfer radical polymerization either free in solution or tethered on Stöber silica particles. (PhD C. Ben Osman)

3.2. Polyoxometalate-polymer Hybrids

collaboration E. Lacôte (C2P2 Lyon), B. Hasenknopf (IPCM)

  • Synthesis of POM-polymer hybrids through RAFT polymerization in solution and emulsion
  • Photocatalysis

Example :

Polystyrene latexes surface-decorated by Dawson polyoxometalate and their surface-reactivity. (Chem. Eur. J. (2015), DOI: 10.1002/chem.201405708)
