Abstract:

Norbornenes containing esters, cyano, acetate, and related functionalities can be polymerized in a living manner employing MoCH-t-BuNAr O-t-Bu2 as the initiator, especially in THF, to give polymers with polydispersities as low as 1.04. Living polymers containing Mo-alkylidene end groups have been characterized by proton NMR methods.
