The bis-complex formation of two terpyridine-modified polymers using microwave assisted reaction conditions was investigated in detail. In order to construct a heteroleptic block copolymer polystyrene, which was prepd. by nitroxide-mediated radical polymn. (NMRP), and a com. available poly(ethylene oxide) were used. These studies include the influence of temp., reaction time, concn. and the use of different solvent mixts. on complexation. The conversion was detd. by GPC measurements. The amphiphilic metallo-supramol. block copolymers were investigated towards their formation of micellar aggregates in water. Other characterization techniques include 1H-NMR, UV/vis spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering (DLS), at. force spectroscopy (AFM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques.
