Abstract : Conditions for the thermal polymerization of cyclopentadiene to tetracyclopentadienes and higher molecular weight oligomers are given for both neat and solution polymerization modes. Density and volumetric heats of combustion are given for the mixtures of oligomers formed under different conditions. Compatibilities of oligomers with hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) are given. (Author)
