We present the first detailed report of the synthesis of Wulff-type styrenic monomers and their polymerization by radical addition−fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) methods. The resulting polymers and block copolymers exhibit sugar-responsive solubilization in aqueous buffer solutions (pH = 7.4−7.8) in the presence of monosaccharides such as d-fructose and d-glucose
