Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Prior to this work, it was considered that the lowest glass transition temperature for an amorphous polyketone of high optical activity was 145°C. Following this consideration, materials with Tg 'tunable' to any temperature above 31°C with well-defined structures were successfully synthesized. This result suggest that the possible applications of isotactic polyketones can be expanded by the addition of novel materials and methods.
