Summary

This chapter reviews transition metal-containing polymers and includes basic information. The chapter lays the basis for the remainder of the volume. Discusses polymers containing bis(cyclopentadienyl)metal complexes, metal-carbon bonding, metal-metal bonds, cyclobutadiene-metal complexes, metal-carbonyl, and arene-transition metal polymers.
