Catalyticpolymerization of ε-caprolactone in air

Author affiliations


A highly efficient, catalytic open-air ring opening polymerization for cyclic esters is reported. Using titanium alkoxides, Ti(OiPr)4 and Ti(OnBu)4, as catalysts reproducible ROPs even with high monomer/initiator ratios without protecting gas are feasible.
