Dounis, Panagiotis (1990) Synthesis and ring opening metathesis polymerization of some substituted norbornenes. Masters thesis, Durham University.
The work reported in this thesis is concerned with an investigation of the synthesis and ring-opening metathesis polymerization of some substituted norbomenes. The monomers investigated were 2-phenoxy-3-chloro-2,3-difluorobicyclo[2.2. l]hept-5-ene and 2-phenoxycarbonylbicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene.The attempted synthesis of 2-phenoxy-3-chloro-2,3-difluorobicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene and the synthesis and characterisation of 2-phenoxycarbonylbicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-ene (or 2-phenoxycarbonyl norbomene) are discussed in Chapter 2.The ring-opening metathesis polymerization of 2-phenoxycarbonyl norbornene and the characterisation of the polymers obtained via classical and well-defined catalysis are described in Chapter 3. The final chapter is concerned with some of the physical properties of the polymers.
