Abstract

Synthetic organic polymers are predominantly based on chains of carbon atoms and have tremendous technological utility. The presence of transition metal elements in the main chain of a polymer is expected to lead to macromolecules which combine processability with novel physical or catalytic properties. To date the preparation of transition metal-based polymers in which the metal atoms are held in close proximity so as to promote interactions has been dominated by synthetic problems and examples of soluble, well-defined, and well-characterized materials of reasonable molecular weight (Mn > 104) are very rare.1
