Abstract

A one-step synthesis of 2,4-dinitrostyrene is described. Based on a Stille coupling, the procedure is more amenable to scale-up than the existing methods that require longer reaction sequences and hazardous nitration processes. This easily polymerizable monomer was isolated using a continuous extraction method. The reaction was extended to the synthesis of two other related vinyl monomers including the previously unknown 1,3-dinitro-4,6-divinylbenzene.
