A perenial source of controversy.
Colleagues and friends dedicate to Professor Hatsuo Ishida a special issue and a special section in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics.
Thermally conductive thermoplastics have attracted attention as heat dissipative materials for a vast number of electronic devices. S. Yoshihara and coworkers (Kaneka Corporation, Japan) now report that thermoplastics exhibit high thermal conductivity by lamellar crystal alignment.
Canadian researchers now synthesized polymers that contain two different organometallic cores by post modification of organoiron poly(alkynyl methacrylates) with dicobalt hexacarbonyl.
Unlike Cu-mediated systems, high pressure reduces the equilibrium constant for iron-mediated atom-transfer radical polymerizations.
