|Abstract:||A gold substrate with surface-grafted ferrocene functional polymer brushes, or Au-g-PFTMA surface [PFTMA= poly(5-ferrocene-triazolyl methacrylate)], was prepared by a combination of surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP) and "click chemistry" in one pot, in the presence of 2-azidoethyl methacrylate (AzEMA), ethynyl ferrocene, CuBr catalyst, CuBr 2 deactivator, and pentamethyldiethylenetriamine ligand. Thus, SI-ATRP ofAzEMA from the Au substrate (the "grafting from" process) and click chemistry of the ethynyl ferrocene to the azide functional group of AzEMA (the "grafting to" process) proceeded simultaneously to produce the functional PFTMA brushes on the Au surface. Kinetic studies suggest that the reaction involving simultaneous SI-ATRP and click chemistry is still consistent with a controlled/"living" process. The composition and physical properties of the modified gold surface were analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, water contact angle measurement, and cyclic voltammetry. The redoxresponsive properties of the ferrocene-functionalized polymer brushes on the Au-g-PFTMA surface were demonstrated in the reversible loading-unloading step of the β-cyclodextrin polymer via host-guest interaction. © 2010 American Chemical Society.|
