Abstract

(Chemical Equotion Present). Transfer ticket: A group transfer polymerization (CTP) reaction mechanism operates in the living polymerization of diethyl vinylphosphonate, in which high-molecular-weight homo- and copolymers are produced using simple rare-earth-metal complexes (see scheme). The mechanism is consistent with the well-known and established mechanism for polar monomers such as acrylates, and opens up a new approach toward phosphorus-containing polymeric materials.
