A novel route for the synthesis of polymeric catenanes was demonstrated by grafting an alkyne functionalized polymer onto a supramolecularly templated azide terminated ligand followed by ring closure via atom transfer radical coupling (ATRC). The polymeric catenane was characterized via GPC and AFM imaging. This journal is
