The use of acyclic diene metathesis (ADMET) in the synthesis of functionalized polyolefins is discussed. The nature of polymerizations, catalysts, and techniques are briefly covered. An overview of recent functionalized ADMET polymers and major contributions to its methodology is given. This chapter will place special emphasis on the use of ADMET to synthesize increasingly complex and new morphologies, resulting in well-defined polyolefin structures and functionalized materials unlocked as a result of this powerful polymerization method. Presented are polyolefins, materials, and architectures not possible through conventional polymerization techniques.

2. Admet

Before discussing the details of various functionalized polyolefins synthesized by ADMET, it is first necessary to give the reader a brief description of the ADMET reaction and mechanism, including considerations and limitations. This section also provides a general procedure for performing a typical polymerization.
