Abstract

Polymers with narrow molecular weight distributions and controlled architectures were generated by living ring-opening metathesis polymerization of exo-7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene-2,3-dicarboximide. The dicarboximie units have been previously shown to exhibit biological activity, can selectively bind to the nucleic acid base adenine by hydrogen-bonding, and are readily functionalizable. Block copolymers containing these moieties were generated, and underwent self-assembly into nanoscale spherical aggregates, with surface localized molecular recognition motifs.
