Cover: Co-bisimino(pyridine) complex catalyzes not only the cyclopolymerization of 1,6-heptadiene, but also the random copolymerization of the diene with ethylene. The resulting polymer contains transfused five-membered rings along the linear polymer chain. The copolymers with a density variety of cyclic units exhibit different thermal properties depending on the polymerization conditions. Further details can be found in the article by D. Takeuchi, R. Matsuura, and K. Osakada* on page 1932.
