Abstract Recently, we reported on the synthesis of poly(10-undecene-1-ol) with terminal vinylidene groups as precursor for the preparation of novel polar macromonomers.[1] For the polymerization unbridged metallocene catalysts were used successfully. The further development of our synthesis method enabled us the preparation of poly(10-undecene-1-ol) with allyl end groups directly. On this way novel macromonomers were obtained. They were used for the copolymerization with olefins. The thermal properties and the crystalline structure of the poly(10-undecene-1-ol)s were characterized using DSC and WAXS. They reveals their smectic layer structures via side chain crystallization caused by strong interaction of the hydroxyl groups.[2] This crystallization behavior of the polymers with isotactic and atactic configurations is similar.
