New catalyst design for polymerization of norbornene esters by reducing intramolecular interaction.

Abstract

We have used density functional theory to study palladium-based catalysts commonly used for the polymerization of norbornene derivatives with an ester group. Exo-exo, exo-endo, and endo-endo isomers of catalyst complexes were investigated; the endo-endo isomer was the most stable and inactive due to an intramolecular interaction between Pd and O of the… (More)
