Metathesis Catalyst Caught In Action

Esfandiari, N. M. and Blum, S. A. “Homogeneous vs Heterogeneous Polymerization Catalysis Revealed by Single-Particle Fluorescence Microscopy” J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2011, 133, 18145. Suzanne Blum’s group at UC Irvine has taken a closer look at ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) of dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) by the second generation Grubbs catalyst using a high-sensitivity and high-resolution single-particle […]
