Stationary phases for chromatography prepared by ring opening metathesis polymerization.

The chemistry of metathesis polymerization-derived stationary phases is summarized. Since both ring-opening metathesis and 1-alkyne polymerization triggered by well-defined transition metal alkylidenes are living polymerization methods, they allow for the controlled and highly reproducible synthesis of stationary phases in terms of both the nature and total… CONTINUE READING
