Abstract

Germanium-containing polymers based on metal enolates have in the past not been synthesized due to the difficulty in obtaining stable enolates and to the fact that traditional preparation routes were geared to the production of monomeric species. A method for preparing these technologically interesting organometallic polymers is presented and discussed.
