Abstract

Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) polymers were prepared by inclusion polymerization of the monomer using various molar equivalents of b-cyclodextrin (b-CD). Stereoregular (isotactic, atactic and syndiotactic) distributions of the prepared PAN polymers were determined from terminal model Bernoullian statistics using 13CNMR data. With an increase in acrylonitrile (AN): b-CD ratios, the proportion of isotactic polymers increased. Also, Tg increased along with degradation temperature at higher AN: b-CD ratios. However, molecular weight of the polymers prepared was lower at an AN: b-CD ratio of 10:1, but was found to be larger than the control at an AN: b-CD ratio of 20:1.
