Abstract

This work focuses on the synthesis and the ring-opening metathesis polymerization of α-norbornenylpoly(ethylene oxide) macromonomers. Although obtained in 100% yield and with a narrow distribution of molar masses, the polymacromonomers exhibit degrees of polymerization that are systematically higher than expected. The reasons for this feature are thoroughly discussed.
