The purpose of this project is to conduct research for the preparation of unsaturated organic com pounds containing F and to prepare various fluoro olefins which may give oil and fuel resistant elastomers which retain elasticity at low temper atures. The reaction of CF2CFCH2SiCHI and CF2CFSiCH33 II with butadiene was studied. A cyclobutyl derivative was formed from the butenylsilane. Nitrosyl chloride reacted with I to give CF2ClCFNOCH2-CH2SiCH33. I also formed a cyclobutyl dimer on heating. Trifluoroaceto phenone treated with ethylene chlorohydrin gave 2-trifluoromethyl-2-phenyl-1,3-dioxolane. Lithium methylacetylide reacted with a number of fluoroolefins to give compounds containing both double and triple bonds.
