Abstract

A series of ethylene-vinyl chloride-like copolymers were prepared by ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). The route to these materials included the bulk polymerization of 5-chlorocyclooctene and 5,6-dichlorocyclooctene with the first-generation Grubbs' catalyst, followed by diimide hydrogenation of the resulting unsaturated polymers. In addition, the amount of chlorine in these materials was varied by the copolymerization of 5-chlorocyclooctene with cyclooctene. These materials were fully characterized by NMR (1H and 18C), gel permeation chromatography, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Finally, hydroboration was carried out on the ROMP product of 5-chlorocyclooctene to yield a polymer, which was effectively a vinyl alcoholvinyl chloride-ethylene terpolymer.
