Abstract

Poly(β-hydroxyl amine)s are prepared from readily available small molecular building blocks at ambient conditions. These macromolecules can be transformed into main-chain cationic polymers upon quaternization of the backbone amine units. The modular and mild nature of the synthesis allows for incorporation of multiple (2-4) chemically distinct reactive sites in the polymer chain. Modifications of the reactive sites afford multifunctional polymers with tunable properties. The orthogonal nature of the involved chemistries sets the synthetic pathway free from any functional group protection/deprotection requirements. This feature also allows for alteration of the modification sequence.
