This work demonstrates that poly(silyl ether)s can be derived from poly(acyl silane)s through Brook rearrangements and Brook/benzoin sequences. Such skeletal editing is a powerful strategy to install functionality and modify properties of polymeric materials.
This work demonstrates that industrially-relevant vinyl polymers can be derived from polyesters through a sigmatropic rearrangement. Such editing of the polymer skeleton leads to dramatic changes in the thermal properties of the materials, and provides access to novel polymer compositions and structural precision.
