Abstract

The Fe and Co complexes with a bis(imino)pyridine ligand promote the polymerization of 1,6-heptadienes with quantitative cyclization to yield polymers containing five-membered rings. The polymers composed of cis-fused five-membered rings and trans-fused rings are obtained selectively by choosing the catalyst.
