Hydroxyl-, amine-, and lactone-end-functional poly(methyl methacrylate)s (PMMA) were prepared with controlled molecular weights and Mw/Mn = 1.06-1.19 via group transfer polymerization. This was achieved by the electrophilic termination of silyl ketene acetal ended PMMAs with benzaldehyde, N-trimethylsilyl benzaldimine, and 5,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-2-one, respectively. The number-average degree of functionalization, as determined by NMR/SEC, was in the range of 0.70-0.85. A Lewis acid was used for terminating silyl ketene acetal ended PMMA with N-trimethylsilyl benzaldimine, whereas tetra-n-butyl ammonium bibenzoate was used in the case of benzaldehyde and 5,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-2-one. MALDI-TOF MS analysis of the end-functional polymers indicated the competing formation of cyclic end groups due to a back-biting reaction along with end-functional PMMAs.
