abstract

  • Azido β-cyclodextrins were attached to propiolate-functionalized polydimethylsiloxanes by metal-free click chemistry. The obtained telechelic copolymers spontaneously produced elastomeric gums. Demixing and supramolecular associations are the driving forces for the construction of these strongly associated (but reversible) physical networks.
