Abstract: Coordination−insertion copolymerization of allyl monomers with ethylene was developed by using a palladium/phosphine−sulfonate catalyst. A variety of allyl monomers, including allyl acetate, allyl alcohol, protected allylamines, and allyl halides, were copolymerized with ethylene to form highly linear copolymers that possess in-chain −CH2CH(CH2FG)− units.
