Several new triptycene-containing polyetherolefins were synthesized via acyclic diene metathesis polymerization. Inclusion of triptycene was found to increase the glass transition temperature over 100 °C from the control polymer without any triptycene. Varying the amounts and orientations of triptycene was found to increase the stiffness, toughness, and ductility of the polymer at room temperature.
