Polymer-Chain Encoding: Synthesis of Highly Complex Monomer Sequence Patterns by Using Automated Protocols

Jean-Francois Lutz, Institut Charles Sadron, Strasbourg, stated: “The results are at the forefront of polymer science. In that regard, the Chemspeed instrument has greatly simplified our research!”

These research results were recently published by Wiley’s International Edition of Applied Chemistry (Delphine Chan-Seng, Mirela Zamfir, and Jean-Francois Lutz*, “Polymer-Chain Encoding: Synthesis of Highly Complex Monomer Sequence Patterns by Using Automated Protocols,” Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2012, 51.)

Summary of the scientific publication
The sequence-controlled copolymerization of donor/acceptor comonomers can be considerably improved by using robotic tools. Indeed, automated procedures allow the straightforward preparation of well-defined polymer chains containing up to 8 (in some cases 9) precisely positioned functional regions. Thus, complex chain encryption is attainable. These new results demonstrate further that the field of sequence controlled polymers is rapidly progressing.
