Section Title: Chemistry of Synthetic High Polymers
A no. of sol. organometallic polymers with pendent cyclopentadienyliron and pentamethylcyclopentadienylruthenium moieties were prepd. under mild exptl. conditions. These polyarom. materials contained ether, thioether and amine bridges. These polymeric materials were characterized using NMR, GPC and thermogravimetric anal. Photolytic demetallation of the organometallic polymers allowed for the isolation of the purely org. polymers in good yield. [on SciFinder(R)]
