Synthesis of nanometer-sized rod–coil block copolymers

König, Hannah M. ; Kilbinger, Andreas F. M.

In: CHIMIA International Journal for Chemistry, 2013, vol. 67, no. 11, p. 788–790

We present the solid-supported synthesis of a linear rigid rod-like tetradeca(p-benzamide) nanorod as well as a pentadeca( p -benzamide) nanorod carrying an amide N-hexyl side chain at the center of the rod (on the 8th amino acid of the molecule). These nanorods were conjugated with solubilizing poly(ethylene glycol) chains and their solution aggregation was investigated. Both rod–coil block...

Bis-TEGylated poly(p-benzamide)s: combining organosolubility with shape persistence

Schulze, Maren ; Michen, Benjamin ; Fink, Alke ; Kilbinger, and Andreas F. M.

In: Macromolecules, 2013, vol. 46, no. 14, p. 5520–5530

The synthesis of perfectly planar, bis-substituted aromatic polyamides is reported herein. With highly flexible triethylene glycol chains attached and conformational restriction through intramolecular, bifurcated hydrogen bonds these are among the most shape-persistent yet organo-soluble polymers to date. Starting from 4-nitrosalicylic acid, our group developed a route to phenyl-2,5-bis-TEGylated...

Controlling molecular self-assembly on an insulating surface by rationally designing an efficient anchor functionality that maintains structural flexibility

Hauke, Christopher M. ; Bechstein, Ralf ; Kittelmann, Markus ; Storz, Christof ; Kilbinger, Andreas F. M. ; Rahe, Philipp ; Kühnle, Angelika

In: ACS Nano, 2013, vol. 7, no. 6, p. 5491–5498

Molecular self-assembly on surfaces is dictated by the delicate balance between intermolecular and molecule–surface interactions. For many insulating surfaces, however, the molecule–surface interactions are weak and rather unspecific. Enhancing these interactions, on the other hand, often puts a severe limit on the achievable structural variety. To grasp the full potential of molecular...

ROMP copolymers for orthogonal click functionalizations

Schaefer, Mark ; Hanik, Nils ; Kilbinger, Andreas F. M.

In: Macromolecules, 2012, p. -

The ring-opening metathesis polymerization using ruthenium carbene initiators developed by Grubbs et al. is one of the most functional group tolerant living polymerization methods known. One of the most used postpolymerization functionalization methods used today is the copper-catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition between alkynes and organic azides. Organic azides are, however, not tolerated by...

Developing new methods for the mono-end functionalization of living ring opening metathesis polymers

Kilbinger, Andreas F.M.

In: CHIMIA International Journal for Chemistry, 2012, vol. 66, no. 3, p. 99-103

In this article we present a review of our recent results in one area of research we are involved in. All research efforts in our group focus on functional polymers and new ways of gaining higher levels of control with regard to the placement of functional groups within these polymers. Here, the living ring opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) will be reviewed for which end-functionalization...

Efficient amine end-functionalization of living ring-Opening metathesis polymers

Nagarkar, Amit A. ; Crochet, Aurelien ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Kilbinger, Andreas F. M.

In: Macromolecules, 2012, vol. 45, no. 11, p. 4447–4453

An efficient strategy for the synthesis of monoamine end-functionalized living polymers using ring-opening metathesis polymerization with ruthenium initiators is reported. A new end-capping agent for this purpose was synthesized, and its efficiency for end-functionalization was evaluated using two common ruthenium-based initiators. Finally, terminal cross-metathesis was also explored as another...

Ab-initio crystal structure analysis and refinement approaches of oligo p-benzamides based on electron diffraction data

Gorelik, Tatiana E. ; Streek, Jacco van de ; Kilbinger, Andreas F. M. ; Brunklaus, Gunther ; Kolb, Ute

In: Acta Crystallographica Section B, 2012, vol. 68, no. 2, p. 171-181

Ab-initio crystal structure analysis of organic materials from electron diffraction data is presented. The data were collected using the automated electron diffraction tomography (ADT) technique. The structure solution and refinement route is first validated on the basis of the known crystal structure of tri-p-benzamide. The same procedure is then applied to solve the previously unknown crystal...

Polyethylenimine is a strong inhibitor of human papillomavirus and cytomegalovirus infection

Spoden, Gilles A. ; Besold, Katrin ; Krauter, Steffi ; Plachter, Bodo ; Hanik, Nils ; Kilbinger, Andreas F. M. ; Lambert, Carsten ; Florin, Luise

In: Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2012, vol. 56, no. 15, p. 75-82

Polyethylenimines are cationic polymers with potential as delivery vectors in gene therapy and with proven antimicrobial activity. However, the antiviral activity of polyethylenimines has not been addressed in detail thus far. We have studied the inhibitory effects of a linear 25-kDa polyethylenimine on infections with human papillomaviruses and human cytomegaloviruses. Preincubation of cells...
