Telechelic poly(phosphoester)s have been prepared via acyclic diene metathesis polymerization with varying molecular weights and end group functionalization. Telechelic alcohols, acids, epoxides, thioesters and bromides with tailorable molecular weights between 3000 and ca. 30,000 g/mol have been prepared and characterized in detail. A high end-group functionality (>99 %) was found in all cases.
