During the last two decades, poly(dicyclopentadiene) prepared by Ring-opening Metathesis Polymerisation has emerged as an important competitor for epoxy- and polyester resins. This review article summarises the contributions from academia in this timeframe. The fields of initiator system development, polymer chemistry and physics, composites of poly(dicyclopentadiene), use in self-healing composites, novel processing opportunities and macro- as well as microporous materials are covered.
