Cationic Polymerization of α, β-Disubstituted Olefins
It is well known that α, β disubstituted olefins cannot usually be polymerized to high polymers, especially by free-radical-type polymerization. The difficulty of polymerization has been attributed to the steric repulsion induced by the β substituted group in the transition state of the propagating reaction1.
