Polymerization of substituted acetylenes and features of the formed polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Progress in the polymerization of substituted acetylenes and the properties and functions of the formed polymers that have been synthesized in the past several years are surveyed. Polymerization catalysts for substituted acetylenes, new monomers and polymers, controlled polymerizations, and photoelectronic functions and separation membranes of substituted polyacetylenes are discussed. A focus is placed on the development of novel rhodium catalysts for the polymerization of phenylacetylenes, the helical structures of the polymers obtained from chiral monosubstituted acetylenes, and highly gas-permeable polymers prepared from disubstituted acetylenes, in which great advances have been made recently.
