In the 1970s, endlinking non-linear polymerizations were employed to produce
so-called model networks, with molecular structures better defined than those of
traditional elastomers (see ). From the mid-1970s, the classical elasticity ...
Often the reactive groups are at the ends of chains or subchains, giving rise to the
term 'endlinking' (polymerization). Endlinking may be contrasted with crosslinking
, referring to reactions linking together existing, primary polymer chains to form ...
Chapter 2) If networks are formed by endlinking functionally terminated chains
instead of haphazardly joining chain segments at random, then the nature of this
very specific chemical reaction provides the desired structural information [3,41 ...
