Abstract

We report a robust synthetic strategy to prepare high molecular weight side-chain cationic cobaltocenium-containing polymers and block copolymers via ring-opening metathesis polymerization. All polymerizations were extremely fast with high yields (∼100%) under open air conditions at room temperature and followed a living and controlled manner.
