For the first time, cyclopentene (CPE) has been copolymerized with the strained cycloolefin norbornene (NBE) using catalytic amounts of the electrochemically prepared metathesis catalyst. The microstructure of polymers was determined by H-1 NMR and C-13 NMR spectroscopy. The polymers were also characterized by differential scanning calorimetry and gel permeation chromatography (GPC) techniques.
