The successful synthesis of the heterotelechelic H-bonding polymer Ba-PnBuA-HW (Mn,NMR = 7700 g/mol, Mn,SEC = 7500 g/mol, PDI = 1.25) was accomplished. Self-assembly in a head-to-tail fashion driven by multiple H-bondings in solution and in the bulk was proven by temperature-dependent 1H NMR, concentration-dependent DOSY NMR studies, and rheological measurements.
