Summary

4-Vinyl [2.2]paracyclophane (1) was successfully prepared as white crystals in 45 % yield via three step reactions. Monomer 1 was homopolymerizable with 2,2′-azobis(isobutyronitrile) (AIBN), boron trifluoride etherate, and butyllithium. Monomer 1 was copolymerizable with methyl acrylate and p-chlorostyrene in the presence of AIBN in benzene at 60 °C. It was found that monomer 1 was less conjugative and more electron-donating than styrene.
