Abstract

A route based on deaminohalogenation of serine is established to synthesize bromoinimers that can be homopolymerized to produce hyperbranched polyacrylates that are true architectural analogues of linear polyacrylates; that is, an ester group is attached to every other carbon along the polymer backbone, and each repeat unit contains a free ester side chain.
