Polymerization of functionalised C1 monomers is a powerful tool with which to obtain highly functionalised polymers. Such polymers are difficult to prepare by traditional olefin polymerization. Rh-mediated carbine polymerization may offer a solution to prepare such desired polymers. In her PhD dissertation, Annemarie Walters seeks to elucidate the reaction mechanisms of stereoregular carbine polymerization with the help of Rh.
