Patent Number: 6,281,307

Title: Polymerizable composition, process for producing cross linked polymers, and cross-linkable polymers

Abstract: Composition comprising (a) catalytic amounts of a one-component catalyst for metathesis polymerization and (b) at least one polymer with strained cycloalkenylene radicals bonded in the polymer backbone, alone or as a mixture with strained cycloolefins. The composition can be polymerized thermally or photochemically by metathesis polymerization and is suitable for the production of shaped articles, coatings and relief images. The catalyst is selected from Ruthenium and Osmium compounds.
