Polymer synthesis via the palladium-catalyzed allylic substitution reaction between allylic esters and malonic esters, namely the Tsuji-Trost reaction, is summarized in this review. Due to the versatility and potential of the Tsuji-Trost reaction, four polymerization patterns for various functionalized polymers have been reported.
