Thiol-ene reactions at surfaces have been investigated, comparing poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) acrylate and methacrylate monomers with polymers made by cobalt catalysed chain transfer polymerisation (CCTP) using QCM-D. Thiolated surfaces were generated on silicon dioxide QCM-D sensors, with PEG monomers and polymers subsequently passed over the thiolated surface to study the thiol-ene reaction in the absence and presence of tris(2-carboxyethyl) phosphine, TCEP as catalyst.
