[en] ring-opening polymerization (ROP) ; lactone
[en] Cyclic esterketone compounds, and in particular, 2-oxepane-1,5-dione, which are useful as a monomer for the production of polymers, and in particular for the production of poly(2-oxepane-1,5-dione). Processes are also disclosed for both the synthesis of this new compound and for the use (polymerization) thereof for the preparation of poly(2-oxepane-1,5-dione). The poly(2-oxepane-1,5-dione) polymers and copolymers which are obtained by use of the polymerization processes with the monomer compounds are also disclosed.
