Abstract : Addition reactions to the double bond of a series of sterically-hindered alpha-olefins have been carried out. The kinetics of these reaction were measured and the rates of reaction correlated with the steric effects present in the olefin. A theory known as Newman's rule of six has been successfully applied to alpha-olefins to correlate reaction rates with steric effects and to explain, in part, the difficulty of obtaining desirable polymers from these olefins.
