Sterically controlled styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) copolymers were prepared by inclusion polymerization using molar equivalents of -cyclodextrin ( -CD) and its derivative. Comonomer compositions, reactivity ratios, monomer sequence and average styrene and acrylonitrile sequence lengths were determined using 13C NMR spectroscopy. The molecular weight of the polymers prepared increased with decreasing -CD concentration, but was found to be less than the control. With increase in the styrene: -CD ratios the average acrylonitrile sequence length and run number of the polymers increased. The glass transition temperature (Tg) also increased along with the melting temperature (Tm) of the polymers at higher styrene: -CD ratios.
