Polyterpenes by ring opening metathesis polymerization of caryophyllene and humulene

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ring opening metathesis polymerization of the natural sesquiterpenes caryophyllene and humulene, optionally complemented by exhaustive post-polymerization hydrogenation, yields non-crosslinked linear polymers with unprecedented microstructures reflecting the specific scaffolds of the feedstocks and with low glass transition temperatures in the range from −15 to −50 °C.
