A general route for the N-hydroxysuccinimidyl ester functionalisation of poly(ferrocenyldimethyl)silane-b-polyvinylsiloxane copolymers, which should be readily transferrable to other vinyl containing polymers, has been developed using a simple two step approach. Facile reaction of the N-hydroxysuccinimidyl (NHS) ester functionalised polymers with primary amines enables the incorporation of a range of functionalities previously inaccessible using standard thiol-ene “click” reactions.
