High-pressure synthesis of novel thietane monomers and polymers

Ni Made Puspawati, David J. Young

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High-pressure polymerization of thietane with a neutral nucleophile provides a quantitative yield of high molecular weight polythietane suggesting a large, negative activation volume from electrostriction of solvent in the transition state. The corresponding reaction of 3-aryloxythietanes can be achieved but requires much harsher conditions.
