- In this study, sodium azide (NaN3) was employed as a functional anionic initiator to polymerize ethylene oxide in N, N-dimethylformamide (DMF) leading to the production of the reactive polymeric alkoxide. The molecular weights of all products were controlled within the 2800-10 000 g mol(-1) range on the basis of the stoichiometric balance. NaN3-initiated polymerization of ethylene oxide (EO) and chain end functionalization of the resulting alkoxide were found to be a simple and efficient method for synthesizing heterobifunctional PEOs. The reaction route via chain end tosylation of a-azide PEOs was found to yield almost quantitative functionalizations for the synthesis of alpha-azide-omega-tosyl PEO, alpha-azide-omega-thiol PEO, and alpha-amine-omega-thiol PEO (over 98 mol%).
