Fractions of the product resulting from the polymerization of methyl methacrylate in the presence of hyperbranched perfluorinated poly(phenylene germane) have been studied by dynamic and static light scattering and capillary viscometry in methyl ethyl ketone solutions. The hybrid product is obtained via the reaction of the chain transfer of methyl methacrylate propagating radicals to pentafluorophenyl groups. Eight fractions have been isolated by fractional precipitation, including fractions of the linear-dendrite block copolymer. Light scattering studies have shown that hybrid macromolecules containing 15–20 wt % hyper-branched fragments form micelles in solutions.
