Reaction mechanisms of ring-opening polymerization and structures and properties of resulting polymers of bicyclic acetals including 6,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane (abbreviated to DBO) and 6,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]oct-3-ene (DBOE), bicyclic oxalactone 6,8-dioxabicyclo[3.2.1]octan-7-one (DBOO), bicyclic oxalactam 8-oxa-6-azabicyclo[3.2.1.]octan-7-one (BOL), and related hetero bicyclic compounds are reviewed. Polysaccharide analogues were prepared from DBO and DBOE. Novel macrocyclic oligoesters were obtained in high yields from DBOO. BOL yielded easily a novel hygroscopic polyamide membrane of high molecular weight.
