Lewis Pair polymerization

This article is HOT as recommended by the referees. And we’ve made it free to access for 4 weeks.

In this HOT article, Chen et al. extend their previous work to present a combined experimental and computational investigation of Lewis Pair polymerization incorporating 11 Lewis acids and 10 achiral and chiral Lewis bases, for the polymerization of 12 different types of monomers.
