Application of new photolabile protecting groups as photocleavable joints of block copolymers

Academic Article


  • New photoresponsive block copolymers (BCPs) have been developed by incorporating photocleavable units. These photocleavable units are derived from robust photolabile protecting groups (PPGs); UV irradiation cleaves the BCPs and releases a well-defined chemically active functional group at the cleaved end of a PS polymer. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2013.
