Process parameters of the polymerization of a mixture of exo,exo- and endo,endo-dimethyl esters of norbornene-2,3-dicarboxylic acid in the bulk of the monomer under the action of a ruthenium catalyst of the Hoveyda–Grubbs type are developed. The effect of the concentration of the catalyst on the physical and mechanical properties of poly(norbornene-2,3-dicarboxylic acid dimethyl ester) is studied.
