Microscopic Infrared Mapping of Chloromethylated Polystyrene Resin Beads
Abstract:In solid-phase combinatorial chemistry, analyses are performed using a wide range of analytical techniques ranging from gel-phase nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to colorimetric tests to elemental analysis. However, these techniques cannot be used to interrogate functional group distribution at the single-bead level. This paper explores the feasibility of using Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) microscopy to examine site distribution on chloromethylated polystyrene resin beads and to quantify the loading after coupling with 4-cyanophenol, an IR tagging agent. FT-IR microscopy also provides a unique opportunity to better understand the reactivity of highly cross-linked polymer beads under a range of chemical conditions.
