J Nanosci Nanotechnol. 2013 Sep;13(9):5997-6004.A series of alkyl-terminated hyperbranched polyglycidols (HBPs) have been synthesized via an anionicring-opening multi-branching polymerization of glycidolusing trifunctional 1,1,1-tris(hydroxymethyl)propane as an initiator, followed by the ring-opening polymerization of 1,2-epoxyhexane, 1,2-epoxydodecaneand 1,2-epoxytetradecane. The resulting polymers possess polydispersities below 1.5 and the degree of polymerization could be controlled by the ratio of glycidol monomer to the initiator. Read More
