Grafted Polymer

Graft copolymers are a special type of branched copolymer in which the side chains are structurally distinct from the main chain.The grafting of polymers onto carbon nanotubes (CNT) and nanofibers, such as vapor grown carbon fiber (VGCF) surfaces was achieved by (1) the ``grafting onto'' method, (2) ``polymer reaction'' method, (3) ``grafting from'' method, and (4) ``stepwise growth'' method by dendrimer synthesis methodology.
Grafting with telechelic polymers provides an alternative method, commonly referred to as grafting onto , for synthesizing hybrid branched architectures.
Graft copolymerization is considered to be one of the most promising approaches to a wide variety of molecular designs leading to novel type of
tailored hybrid materials.
