Ring-Forming Polymerizations, Part B, 1: Heterocyclic Rings presents a comprehensive review and compilation of ring-forming polymerization reactions that proceed with the formation of heterocyclic rings. Emphasis is placed on polymerizations leading to linear, high molecular weight products. This book is comprised of three chapters and begins with a discussion on polymerizations that result in the formation of a multiple bond containing at least one heteroatom. The condensation of amines with carbonyl compounds to yield poly(Schiff bases) and related polymers is examined, along with other carbon-nitrogen double bond-forming polymerizations. The next chapter is devoted to the polymerization of rings containing two carbon atoms, including the polymerization of polyphenols with diboronic acids and that of diisocyanides with triorganoborons. The last chapter describes the polymerization of rings containing three carbon atoms, with particular reference to polyisoxazoles and related polymers, polythiazoles, polyimidazoles and related polymers, polypyrazoles, and polytriazines. This monograph will be of interest to polymer and organic chemists and others who are concerned with the polymer chemistry of living systems.
