DOI: 10.1039/d1py00570g
The acyclic monoterpene β-myrcene is polymerized by anionic polymerization at room temperature using sec-butyllithium as the initiator and the cyclic monoterpene DL-limonene as an unsaturated hydrocarbon solvent. The polymerization is a living process and allows production of polymyrcenes with narrow molar mass distribution (Ð ~ 1.06) and high content of 1,4 units (~90%) as well as block copolymers.\r\n
