Abstract:

The alkylation of ferrocene by different olefins iso- C4H8, iso-C5H10, and iso-C8H16 in the presence of 25 H3PO4 is described. BF3 at the optimum conditions of 60C and a 5-hr. agitation period, is compared. With an increase in olefin molecular weight, there is a decrease in alkylate yield and ferrocene conversion accompanied by an increase of monoalkylferrocene content. The physical-chemical properties of the prepared alkylferrocenes are listed. Ferrocene and alkylferrocene were then used to obtain ferrocenyl-containing polymers by the polyrecombination reaction which consists of peroxide treatment at 170-200C. The joint polyrecombination of ferrocene with paradichlorobenzene, diphenol, alpha-bromonaphthalene and quinoline was also investigated and the data are tabulated. Soluble polymers were obtained by the polycondensation of ferrocene with acetone in the presence of ZnCl2 HCl. The preparation of polyferrocenylvinylene from acetylferrocene is described. Author
