Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polyolefins, produced by metal catalyzed olefin coordination polymerization, are important commercial synthetic polymers in our daily life, and the market capacity still increases every year. Recently, considerable attention has been paid to produce new polymers with specified functions, properties which cannot be prepared by the conventional, ordinary catalysts and/or technology. New polymers can be prepared by incorporation of new comonomers (that cannot be incorporated by ordinary catalysts) in the copolymerization or some new methodology [living (co)polymerization, chain shuttling, tandem catalysts etc.]. It has been known that recent progress for design of the efficient transition metal complex catalysts that precisely control olefin coordination polymerization offers promising possibilities, and the related research attracts considerable attention not only in the field of catalysis, organometallic chemistry, but also in the field of polymer chemistry.

In this special issue, we would like to accept any manuscripts which are aimed to not only concerning design of new (homogeneous and heterogeneous) catalysts and synthesis of (co)polymers, but also the subject concerning polymerization methodologies and mechanistic studies on this good occasion. I personally believe that this should highly contribute to a progress in this research field.

I highly hope that we will be able to receive many submissions, and contribute as a good special issue in this Journal.
