The NiMo catalysts also perform well in diolefins saturation.
Using a suitable amount of the fluorinated diolefin, the iodine functionality of the elastomeric segment A can be increased to two or more than two.

Internal cyclization is also thought to occur during the acid-catalyzed polymerization of linear C5 diolefins (ref.
Diolefins have been shown to polymerize under certain conditions in the solid state.
Besides the hydrogenation of dienes, ethyl and propyl mercaptans are also removed via thioetherification where the diolefins react with the mercaptans to form olefinic sulfides which are higher boiling and concentrate at the bottom of the tower.
