Abstract:

The synthesis and characterization are described of linear polymers, having a carbon chain regularly interrupted by the Group IV elements silicon, germanium, tin or lead. Such polymers were obtained by means of 1 poly-addition reactions involving an organotin dihydride and either a dienic, a diynic or a monoynic compound 2 Wurtz-type poly-condensations involving appropriate combinations of p-chlorophenyl and chloro derivatives of the Group IV elements. The synthesis and polymerization of vinyl-type IVth group organometallic monomers is dealt with briefly. Furthermore, interesting IVth group metal-containing heterocyoles were prepared and also a few polymers, containing in addition to Group IV atoms other hetero-elements in their backbone. All polymer-forming reactions have been studied by carrying out model reactions on a low-molecular weight level. Author
