Abstract

Reversible deactivation radical polymerisation (RDRP) has enabled chemists to generate polymers with precision control over molecular weight and molecular structure. Despite recent advances in the field of template polymerisation, control of the repeat unit sequence requires further development. We describe herein the synthesis of sequence-regulated copolymers of styrene-thymine and maleic anhydride.
