Tuning layered superstructures in precision polymers.

Danke, V., et al. Scientific Reports 2020, 12119, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-68927-x

An approach to influence and control layered superstructures by varying the methylene sequence length between two consecutive functional groups in linear precision polymers containing 2,6-diaminopyridfine (DAP) group is presented. Occurrence of different layered structures depending on crystallization conditions, methylene sequence length as well as defect type is explained by a competition of H-interactions between the DAP groups and the van der Waal forces between the hydrophobic methylene groups.
