Abstract

Work on side-chain transition metal-containing polymers prepared by controlled and living polymerizations is summarized, including living anionic polymerization (LAP), ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) and controlled radical polymerization (CRP) such as atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer polymerization (RAFT), and nitroxide-mediated polymerization (NMP). These polymers include metallocene-containing polymers, ferrocenylsilane polymers with additional metal at the side chain, metal carbonyl complex polymers, and ligated metal complex polymers.
