oligomerization

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.O04285
The process of converting a @M04017@ or a mixture of monomers into an @O04283@. An oligomerization by @C00960@ carried out in the presence of a large amount of @C00963@ agent, so that the @E02092@ are essentially fragments of the @C00963@ agent, is termed @T06260@.
