AbstractA novel route towards hyperbranched polybutadienes via anionic polymerization technique has been developed. Although the preparation of hyperbranched polymers through self-condensing vinyl polymerization (SCVP) has been reported for styrenic and methacrylic monomers using ATRP or group transfer polymerization, diene monomers have not been utilized so far. Along with numerous applications for hyperbranched polybutadiene itself, facile end group modification provides a possibility towards larger scale potential applications. For instance, as rheology modifiers, in coating applications, as functional materials in catalysis, and for nano-templating application.
