New materials for biological applications prepared by olefin metathesis reactions by Heather Dawn Maynard( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the advent of well-defined ruthenium olefin metathesis catalysts that are highly active and stable to a variety of functional groups, the synthesis of complex organic molecules and polymers is now possible; this is reviewed in Chapter 1. The majority of the rest of this thesis describes the application of these catalysts towards the synthesis of novel polymers that may be useful in biological applications and investigations into their efficacy. A method was developed to produce polyethers by metathesis, and this is described in Chapters 2 and 3. An unsaturated 12-crown-4 analog was made by template- directed ring-closing metathesis (RCM) and utilized as a monomer for the synthesis of unsaturated polyethers by ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). The yields were high and a range of molecular weights was accessible. In a similar manner, substituted polyethers with various backbones were synthesized: polymers with benzo groups along the backbone and various concentrations of amino acids were prepared. The results from in vitro toxicity tests of the unsubstituted polyethers are considered. The conditions necessary to synthesize polynorbornenes with pendent bioactive peptides were explored as illustrated in Chapter 4. First, the polymerization of various norbornenyl monomers substituted with glycine, alanine or penta(ethylene glycol) is described. Then, the syntheses of polymers substituted with peptides GRGD and SRN, components of a cell binding domain of fibronectin, using newly developed ruthenium initiators are discussed. In Chapter 5, the syntheses of homopolymers and a copolymer containing GRGDS and PHSRN, the more active forms of the peptides, are described. The ability of the polymers to inhibit human dermal fibroblast cell adhesion to fibronectin was assayed using an in vitro competitive inhibition assay, and the results are discussed. It was discovered that the copoymer substituted with both GRGDS and PHSR peptides was more active than both the GRGDS-containing homopolymer and the GRGDS free peptide. Historically, one of the drawbacks to using metathesis is the removal of the residual ruthenium at the completion of the reaction. Chapter 6 describes a method where the water soluble tris(hydroxymethyl)phosphine is utilized to facilitate the removal of residual ruthenium from RCM reaction products

Living Catalysts for Cyclohexadiene Polymerization( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ROMP polymerization has become an important method for the preparation of polyphenylenevinylenes and polynaphthylenevinylene. The new route allows the band gap and processing properties of the polymers to be varied by the use of side chains and functional groups. These materials are being used to fabricate electoluminescent devices with tunable colors. New techniques have been developed for the synthesis of the starting barrelenes and benzobarrelenes. The synthesis starts from the ICI diol system that was used in the preparation of polyparaphenylene. A key to these developments is the availability of well defined catalysts. Considerable effort has been devoted to the design and synthesis of new complexes that will catalyze the ROMP polymerization reaction and to develop new procedures which will control the molecular weight and livingness of those systems know. The students involved in this work have gained experience in polymer synthesis, catalyst development and the fabrication of devices
