Ring-Opening Polymerizations

  • A. Ravve
Chapter

Abstract

Formation of polymers through ring-opening reactions of cyclic compounds is an important process in polymer chemistry. In such polymerizations, chain-growth takes place through successive additions of the opened structures to the polymer chain:
