Block copolymers consisting of isobutyl vinylether (IBVE) and 2-(1-pyrrolidonyl)-ethylvinylether (PEVE) were synthesized by the nucleophilic substitution of poly(2-chloroethylvinylether-b-isobutylvinylether) (poly(CEVE-b-IBVE)) by the anion of pyrrolidone. The poly(CEVE-b-IBVE) was obtained by sequential polymerization of CEVE and IBVE initiated by 1-iodo-1-(2-methylpropyloxy)ethane/tetrabutylammonium perchlorate. The molar mass and the composition of the block copolymer can be controlled, because the polymerization shows the characteristics of a living polymerization.
