ADMET polymers: synthesis, structure elucidation, and function

Author affiliations

Abstract

Acyclic Diene Metathesis polycondensation produces materials with well-defined primary structures, perfection that is the consequence of symmetry imparted by monomer design. Diverse functionalities can be incorporated either in the polymer backbone or as pendant groups; chemical compatibility of the functional group with the catalyst is a requirement. Structural perfection led to structure/property investigations that would be difficult in imprecise systems. This comprehensive review summarizes the synthetic strategies for production of ADMET polymers. Further presented are the effects on secondary structure of controlling branch identity, in-chain functional groups, and frequency along the polymer chain. Results of spectroscopic, thermal and imaging techniques have been key for understanding the relationships between structure and properties.
