The preparation of a series of IVth group organometallic vinyl monomers derived from styrene and a-methylstyrene, respectively, is described. Thermal or radical-initiated polymerization of the styrene derivatives yielded transparent, solid organometal-substituted polystyrenes. The monomers of the general structure p-CH33MIV-C6H4-CH-CH2 display appreciably different rates of radical-initiated polymerization, i.e. in the order Pb Si C Ge Sn. Author
