High-molecular polymers of vinyl n-butyl ether

  • 30 Accesses


  1. 1.

    The conditions of stereospecific polymerization of simple vinyl ethers at room temperature under the influence of a catalyst produced from VOCl3, LiC3H7, and Al(i-C4H39)3 were found.

  2. 2.

    This system proved especially effective for the polymerization of vinyl n-butyl ether, from which polymers were obtained with molecular weights up to 1.46·106.
