The synthesis of single chain nanoparticles has been achieved by the synthesis of a linear polystyrenic precursor carrying 3,4- propylenedioxythiophene groups via atom transfer radical polymerization followed by intramolecular crosslinking via oxidative polymerization. This methodology enabled the introduction of electroactive inclusions into single chain polymer nanoparticles, while concurrently promoting intramolecular collapse.
