  • This communication describes photoresponsive gels, prepared using ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP), that dissolve upon irradiation with ultraviolet light. Exposure of mixtures of norbornene-type ROMP monomers and new photoreactive cross-linkers comprising two norbornene units bound through a chain containing o- nitrobenzyl esters (NBEs) to well-known ruthenium carbene catalysts gave ... read more
