Supramolecular azopolymers based on hydrogen bonds

Polimery 2015, No 7-8, 425

DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2015.425

The paper is aliterature review on photoactive supramolecular polymers formed through noncovalent interactions, i.e. hydrogen bonds between azo chromophore molecules and macromolecule chains. The individual kinds of such polymers as well as the results of photoinduced optical anisotropy investigations related to them have been presented. The supramolecular azopolymers based on hydrogen bonds have been compared with (i) systems containing chromophores dispersed in polymer matrix, (ii) supramolecular systems based on ionic interactions and (iii) functionalized azopolymers. Additionally, the methods used for the identification of hydrogen bonds in supramolecular azopolymers were discussed.

Keywords: azobenzene derivatives, azopolymers, supramolecular polymers, hydrogen bonds, photoinduced optical anisotropy, surface relief gratings
