The configurational stereochemistry of atactic vinyl homopolymers

Mark M. Green, Bruce Garetz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Atactic vinyl homopolymers, synthesized from non-dissymmetric monomers, are produced racemic or enantiomerically pure depending on the length of the polymer chain. The optical inactivity of high molecular weight samples of these polymers arises by a mechanism unknown in small molecules: intermolecular compensation of diastereomers.
