Abstract

Block copolymers of poly(norbornene) and poly(lactide) were synthesized in one-pot using a bifunctional initiator bearing a ruthenium complex for the Ring-Opening Metathesis Polymerization (ROMP) of norbornenes and an alcohol to initiate the 1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4.4.0]dec-5-ene (TBD) catalyzed Ring-Opening Polymerization (ROP) of l-lactide.
