Highly crystalline syndiotactic 1,2-polybutadiene (s-PB) having melting point (mp) up to 216°C was obtained by using a Co(acac)3-AIEt3-CS2 catalyst. The polymer with mp 208°C was found to have 99.7% 1,2 content and 99.6% syndiotacticity by 1H and 13C-NMR measurements. The s-PB can be molded by addition of a stabilizer such as 2,6-di-t-butyl-4-hydroxymethylphenol into fiber, film, and various shaped articles. The physical properties presented in the present article include stress-strain and dynamic mechanical behavior. The highly crystalline syndiotactic 1,2-polybutadiene was applied to a carbon fiber and UBEPOL VCR (cis-1,4-polybutadiene reinforced by fibrous syndiotactic 1,2-polybutadiene).
