Abstract

This account details externally regulated ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) methods. Various external stimuli are discussed which collectively span chemical, thermal, photochemical, electrochemical, and mechanical modes of catalyst activation. Specific attention is also given to the recent development of a metal-free approach to ROMP that includes electro-organic and photoredox-mediated systems.
