Oligomerization is a method of controlled polymerisation. It is the process of converting monomers or monomer mixtures into oligomers. While polymers are comprised of various lengths of monomers, oligomers only consist of a small number of repeating monomer units. Oligomerization is an important process in biochemistry and for the production of other fine chemicals like oils or thermoplastics.
