Conference Paper

ROMP with stable initiators


Tim Swager introduced the name ROMP for ring opening metathesis polymn. when he was a a graduate student. Since that time, many new initiators for the ROMP of strained olefins have been developed. Recent advances now allow polymers with precise chain length and compn. to be prepd. The synthesis of brush polymers demonstrates the control of polymeric structures that are now possible with modern initiators.
