Abstract

A single-site chain transfer mechanism was proposed for ring-opening Ziegler polymerization of an annulated methylenecyclopropane. All copolymerizations were run with a psuedo-first-order excess of monomer concentration. Polymerizations with all catalysts examined indicated decreased product molecular weight with increased concentration of 7-methylenebicyclo[4.1.0]heptane.
