Preparation of hydroxytelechelic poly(butadiene) via ring-opening metathesis polymerization employing a well-defined metathesis catalyst


In this paper we show that ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) using a discrete metal alkylidene catalyst offers another alternative polymerization technique that is applicable to the synthesis of well-defined HTPBD.
