Lightly branched, hyperbranched and cross-linked polymers with clickable sites were synthesized via a modified version of self-condensing photoinitiated copolymerization of methyl acrylate (MA) with propargyl acrylate (PA). The method is based on the use of a PA monomer containing two polymerizable groups, namely acrylate and propargyl groups with different reactivities in photoinitiated free radical copolymerization with MA.
