Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Walk the line: Cyclopolymerization of 1,6-dienes with vinyl and vinylene groups catalyzed by PdII-diimine complexes causes chain walking of the growing polymer. This isomerization leads to polymers with trans-1,2-disubstituted cyclopentane groups located regularly along the linear polymer chain (see scheme). The polymerization is applicable for dienes with various functional groups.
