Ortho-chain-bridged polyacetylene via the ring-opening metathesis polymerization


Fiala, Brenda L. (1992) Ortho-chain-bridged polyacetylene via the ring-opening metathesis polymerization. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/m5rd-gg62.


Chain-bridged poly(acetylene) polymers have previously been synthesized with meta- and para- linkages to the substituents. In this paper, two ortho-chain-bridged poly(cyclooctatetraene) polymers demonstrate the effects of an enforced cis linkage approximately every fourth carbon-carbon double bond in a poly(acetylene)-like polymer.
