Within this area the synthesis and development of new initiators for the ROMP (“Ring Opening Metathesis Polymerisation”) is driven forward. The most prominent goal is the improvement of Ru-initiators towards high activity and specificity. Together with already well-known examples the new initiators are used or tailor made to produce a variety of specialty polymers. Amongst those block-copolymers are of great interest. As the polymerisation can be carried out in a “living” manner well defined blocks can be formed.
