Abstract

In this work, the mechanical and thermal properties of nanocomposite films prepared from the surface-initiated polymerization of norbornene mediated by a surface-bound ruthenium alkylidine catalyst were investigated. Thermal gravimetric and dynamic mechanical analyses revealed enhanced properties of the resulting nanocomposite films over that of the unfilled polymer.
