ABSTRACT:  The synthesis of cis-1,4-isotactic polypentadiene with Neodymium (Nd)-catalytic systems yields polymers of higher stereoregularity than previously available and made possible the determination of the crystal structure of this polydiene. The lattice is orthorhombic with a=9.49, b=6.07, and c (fiber axis)=8.17 Å; space group P212121 implies the presence of two isochiral chains in the unit cell. The refinement of the crystal structure also establishes the details of the structure confirming the (CS+TS)2 chain conformation originally proposed on the basis of the fiber repeat.
