Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We designed 2,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)anilines bearing protecting groups sensitive to UV light, acid, or base, and used the protected anilines as co-monomers for the synthesis of trigger-responsive polymers. The resulting polymers underwent chain-shattering degradation once the protecting groups were removed, which could be used for trigger-responsive burst release applications. This journal is
