Stereo-controlled synthesis of polyolefins with cycloalkane groups by using late transition metals

Abstract

Pd complexes with diimine ligands promoted the controlled cyclopolymerization of 1,6-dienes and 1,6,11-trienes to afford polymers containing 1,2-trans-cyclopentane groups with well-regulated stereochemistry. The polymerization proceeded with quantitative cyclization of the monomer, even under bulk conditions or in copolymerization reactions with ethylene… (More)
