Synthesis of cycloolefin-based polymers via metathesis-accompanied cyclopolymerization and tandem ring-opening/ring-closing metathesis (RO/RCM) polymerization are undergoing exciting developments and emerging as an area of great interest in the field of polymer synthesis. Among the conventional polymerization techniques, both cyclopolymerization and tandem polymerization give access to highly functional cycloolefin ring-based polymers. This review provides an overview of the synthesis of such cycloolefin-based conjugated and non-conjugated polymers following cyclopolymerization and tandem RO/RCM polymerization methodologies.

Keywords: Poly(acetylene)s, poly(olefin)s, ring-opening metathesis, ring-closing metathesis, cyclopolymerization, tandem polymerization, ruthenium-alkylidene.
