Abstract

Crosslinked polymers containing both ester and organotin moieties were obtained in high yields from diallyl terephthalate (DATP) and tri-n-butyltin hydride via radical processes. The tributyltin ester (1) and the hydrostannated derivatives of DATP (2) were prepared and employed for copolymerizations with DATP. The copolymerizations of 1 and 2 proceeded effectively to afford the corresponding organotin polymers, in which the tributyltin group was incorporated through O–Sn and C–Sn bonds, respectively.
