Catalyst development for the ring-opening copolymerisation of epoxides and anhydrides

Abstract:

This thesis describes the development of a range of catalysts for polyester synthesis via the ring-opening copolymerisation (ROCOP) of epoxides and anhydrides.

Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the ROCOP of epoxides and anhydrides, with a particular focus on catalyst development and mechanism. It also introduces the concept of switchable catalysis and describes its application to the synthesis of block polyesters.

Chapter 2 details the synthesis and characterisation of ...
