Abstract

A new approach toward the grafting of norborn-2-ene derivatives onto ROMP-based monolithic supports has been developed. Grafting yields were governed by three variables, which are the catalyst, temperature and the crosslinker used. Three different catalysts, three grafting temperatures, as well as two different crosslinkers were investigated. By optimizing all variables 4-fold amounts of grafted monomers compared to previously reported procedures were obtained reaching values of 1.04 mmol of monomer/g monolith.
