The tandem ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP)/cross-metathesis (CM) of some cyclic olefins using Grubbs’ second-generation catalyst in the presence of a bifunctional symmetric alkene epoxide- or oxetane-functionalized chain-transfer agent successfully enabled the synthesis of well-defined α,ω-diepoxide and -dioxetane telechelic (co)polyolefins. End-functional polyolefins were thus smoothly obtained under mild operating conditions from cyclooctene, trans,trans,cis-1,5,9-cyclododecatriene (CDT), or norbornene (NB). The subsequent quantitative dithiocarbonatation of an α,ω-di(epoxide) telechelic P(NB-co-CDT) afforded a convenient approach to the analogous α,ω-bis(dithiocarbonate) telechelic copolymer. This works highlights the versatility of metathesis reactions for the preparation of valuable polyolefins end-capped with reactive groups. View this paper
