Synthesis and Characterization of Macrocyclic Poly (2-Vinyl Pyridine) and the Effect of a Rigid Coupling Agent on its Properties
Studies on macrocyclic polymers have been of fundamental interest to the polymer community for some time now. Since, unlike linear polymers, macrocyclic polymers lack chain-ends, a comparison of the two over a broad spectrum of properties is expected to lead to an enhanced understanding of polymer properties in general.
