Abstract

Thermal ring-opening polymerization of the unsymmetrically substituted [1]ferrocenophane was performed in one-dimensional nanochannels of porous coordination polymers (PCPs). In contrast to conventional thermal polymerization in bulk, formation of cyclic polymer was inhibited in the channels. In addition, the tacticity of the resulting polymer was dependent on the pore size of PCPs.
