    • Abstract


      Reaction ofα,Β-unsaturated aromatic carboxylic acids with KBr and H2O2 in the presence of Na2MoO4·2H2O in aqueous medium affordsΒ-bromo alkenes in high yields. Metallocene dichlorides, Cp2MCl2 (M = Ti, Zr, or V) catalyse polymerisation of olefins in aqueous medium to afford high molecular weight polymers with low molecular weight distribution.
