Supramolecular polymers as multifunctional materials

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

An interesting target in polymer science is to find pathways to highly regular supramolecular units with dimensions similar to those of high molar mass linear or hyperbranched polymers. These units lack a polymeric backbone but could serve as precursors to shape invariant covalent polymers analogous to folded proteins. We are pursuing access to these polymers with designed molecules programmed to assemble into nanostructures of regular shape and dimension. Space filling requirements for shape invariant nanostructures, and great structural diversity that can be achieved by molecular synthesis can lead to polymeric materials with unique potential to be multifunctional and easily processable. Another interesting aspect of shape invariant polymers is the possibility of forming 2D or 3D networks by chemical coordination of nanostructures. This lecture will describe the discovery of systems that yield supramolecular polymers and discuss the integration of properties in these systems. Because of space filling behavior these supramolecular polymers can integrate properties such as adhesion, nonlinear optics, luminescence, nano-patterning and control of surface chemistry.
