Both poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) as well as poly(pyopylene glycol) are highly established aliphatic polyether structures that are used in a vast variety of applications, based on their high molecular flexibility, biocompatibility and chemical robustness. The presentation will detail new approaches in the area of aliphatic polyethers, focusing on novel copolymerization and termination strategies. The materials prepared rely on an epoxide monomer “construction kit”. The routes presented can be employed to generate responsive and “smart” surfaces as well as novel Li-ion conducting materials with application potential as polyelectrolytes for batteries. Questions raised in the context of the talk include “Can poly(propylene glycol) become water soluble?” and “Can the concepts also be used for copolymerization with CO2?” The presentation shows the intriguing possibilities of epoxide-based polymer chemistry.
