Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A method of producing a di-substituted pyridinium polymer by microwave-assisted polymerisation of a 2, 3, or 4-substituted pyridine monomer of the formula NC5R4-R' -X, wherein R is selected from hydrogen, hydroxyl, and substituted or unsubstituted alkyl, alkoxy, aryl, alkaryl, aralkyl, and alkenyl groups, R' is a linking group, and X is a leaving group. Using this method, di-substituted pyridinium polymer compositions may be obtained wherein at least 50% of the di- substituted pyridinium polymer chains in the composition have the same degree of polymerisation.
