(Figure Presented) We present the first detailed report of the synthesis of Wulff-type styrenic monomers and their polymerization by radical addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) methods. The resulting polymers and block copolymers exhibit sugar-responsive solubilization in aqueous buffer solutions (pH = 7.4-7.8) in the presence of monosaccharides such as D-fructose and D-glucose.
