POLYOLEFINS: Cycloolefin Copolymers by Early and Late Transition Metal Catalysts

POLYOLEFINS: Cycloolefin Copolymers by Early and Late Transition Metal Catalysts

Incoronata Tritto,* Laura Boggioni, Andrea Ravasio, Giulia Scalcione

Amorphous alternating E-co-N and E-co-NAC copolymers, in excellent yield, are synthesized with the palladium catalyst 1. N concentration allows for tuning molar mass values. Living E-co-N copolymerization with 2, at 50 °C, allows for efficient synthesis of PE-block-P(E-co-N)s, with crystalline PE and amorphous P(E-co-N) blocks, as well as P(E-co-N)1-block-P(E-co-N)2, with different Tg values.
