Cotton fibers were modified by surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization of ethyl acrylate (EA) followed by copolymerization with styrene. Either ethyl 2-bromopropionate as a sacrificial free initiator or Cu(II) as a deactivator was used to optimize the EA grafting yield and to preserve the livingness of the chain ends for the subsequent growth(More)
Ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) of norbornene catalyzed by niobium(V) N,N-dialkylcarbamates Nb(O(2) CNR(2) )(5) , R = Et (1), Me (2) was studied in the presence of methylaluminoxane (MAO) as a cocatalyst. These novel catalytic systems resulted very active in chlorobenzene: 1 in the presence of methylaluminoxane catalyzes the ROMP of norbornene(More)
