Write a mechanism to show how branching occurred in the polymerization of 1,3-butadiene to yield the polymer shown (the polymer is attached).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com June 22, 2018, 7:38 am ad1c9bdddf
The answer is in the attachments (I made a pdf. copy of the .doc original in case you have trouble with either file type).
When propene reacts to form a polymer, the pi-bond breaks homolytically ...
The solution provides an attachment showing the steps of the mechanism for the branching occurring in the polymerization of 1,3-butadiene described using step-by-step diagrams and careful, clear explanation.
