Alkynyl Ethers of Glucans: Substituent Distribution in Propargyl-, Pentynyl- and Hexynyldextrans and -amyloses and Support for Silver Nanoparticle Formation
2010 (English)In: Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics, ISSN 1022-1352, E-ISSN 1521-3935, Vol. 211, no 15, 1648-1662 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Alkynyldextrans with a DS in the range 0.1-1.67 have been prepared as reactive intermediates for further polymer-analogous functionalisation.. DS and substituent distribution were determined by GLC and GLCMS after hydrolysis and acetylation, or methanolysis and trimethylsilylation. Reactivity was in the order O-2 > O-4 >= O-3 with pronounced differences in the distinct patterns for propargyl ethers and its higher homologous. A large deviation from a random substituent distribution was observed. Propargyldextrans were not stable during long-time storage in the solid state, while terminal pentynyl and hexynyl ethers are. Pentynyldextrans showed structure formation of various geometries. They bound silver efficiently, yielding silver nanoparticles by reduction.
