Progress in Ring-Opening Polymerization of Cyclic Ethers and Cyclic Sulfides
Part of the Polymer Science and Technology book series (POLS, volume 25)
Studies of ring-opening polymerization of cyclic ethers and cyclic sulfides are underway in many laboratories throughout the world. A search of eleven leading polymer science journals, made in the course of preparing the present review, revealed 109 papers on these subjects just in the period 1980–1982 (1). This chapter makes no attempt to be comprehensive in its treatment of this active area of research. Instead, discussion is limited to important advances of three kinds:
Emphasis is placed on important developments which have occurred since 1980.
New Initiator Systems
New Methods of Synthesis of Block and Graft Copolymers and
New Reactive Polyethers and Polysulfides
KeywordsBlock Copolymer Ethylene Oxide Graft Copolymer Propylene Oxide Anionic Polymerization
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
