We are enthusiastic about designing, creating, and playing with exotic small and giant molecules that are engineered for tailored properties.
Wanna cleanly and quantitatively end-functionalize living ROMP polymers? Check out Ben's method using single-addition cyclopropenes. Let us know if you would like to try cyclopropenes for your next ROMP end-functionalization.
