A review on the prepn. and uses of organometallic polymers having metal-carbon bonds in the main or side chains or heteroatom-metal bonds in the main chain.
Preparation and ring-opening metathesis polymerizations of 5-siloxydeltacyclene and deltacyclene using the Schrock molybdenum alkylidene catalyst
The living ring-opening metathesis polymns. of deltacyclene (I) and 5-(tert-butyldimethylsiloxy)deltacyclene (II) in presence of the Schrock catalyst Mo(=CHCMe2Ph)[=N-2,6-(iso-Pr)2Ph](O-tert-Bu)2 were described. II was prepd. by first epoxidizing I, then treating this epoxide with a Lewis acid in pr...
