|Title:||Supramolecular Interactions between Inorganic and Organic Blocks of Pentacyanoferrate/Poly(4-vinylpyridine) Hybrid Metallopolymer|
|Abstract:||The combination of organic and inorganic molecular building blocks gives rise to hybrid supramolecular materials showing properties from both chemical domains. This work presents the synthesis of metallopolymers made from poly(4-vinylpyridine) (P4VP) and pentacyanoferrate(II) at various polymer repeating unit/[Fe(CN)(5)](3-) ratios (py/Fe) and focuses on the influence of each block on the properties of the other. The solvatochromic shift of the [Fe(CN)(5)](3-) moiety was investigated as a function of the py/Fe ratio and the water molar fraction (X-H2O) of the ethanol/water medium. Asymmetric solvation favoring ethanol was enhanced as the py/Fe ratio increased. The results lead to a modification of the well-established thermodynamical model for asymmetrical solvation and suggest the formation of water-rich domains within the polymer coils with a large number of [Fe(CN)(5)](3-) units. From the macromolecular perspective, the increase of [Fe(CN)(5)](3-) units resulted in higher values of intrinsic viscosity, which is rationalized by the increase of the polymer coil charge density and therefore the increase in hydrodynamic volume due to repulsive electrical forces. Evaluating the intrinsic viscosity of a sample with py/Fe = 25 in solvent mixtures with different water molar fractions, it was found that the hydrodynamic volume is maximized at intermediate X-H2O values, where both the ethanol-soluble uncomplexed polymer block and the water-soluble [Fe(CN)(5)](3-)-pendant units can be suitably solvated, preventing coil shrinkage.|
