A catalytically relevant intermediate in the synthesis of cyclic polymers from alkynes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A tungsten metallacyclopentadiene complex is generated upon treating a trianionic pincer tungsten alkylidyne with dipropargyl fluorene. The metallacyclopentadiene initiates the polymerization of alkynes to give cyclic polyacetylenes via ring expansion polymerization (REP).
