Control of Alternating Polymer Backbones in ROMP: Toward Sequence Control

A desire to control the orientation and stereochemistry of monomer incorporation led to our design of new substrates for ruthenium-catalyzed ring-opening metathesis polymerization, ROMP. We demonstrated that cyclobutene-1-carboxylate esters, undergo alternating ROMP, AROMP or alt-ROMP, to give copolymers with precisely controlled sequence. Our alternating copolymer systems allow functionality to be placed along a polym…
