Tuning layered superstructures in precision polymers.

Danke, V., et al. Scientific Reports 2020, 12119,

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.
