Chemical modification of polybutadiene was achieved by orthoalkylation of aromatic ketimine with the vinyl group of polybutadiene using a rhodium(I) catalyst. A high 2-acylphenyl group-impregnation ratio was observed with low vinyl group polybutadiene, likely due to decreased steric congestion between the pendant orthoalkylated groups in the modified polybutadiene.
