Abstract

Styrene and various substituted styrenes have found wide application in the formation of polymers and copolymers, such as synthetic rubbers. Substituted styrenes have been investigated in attempts to develop polymers with special physical properties, a high dielectric constant for an example. α-methylstyrenes have been successfully copolymerized by Bachman and Finholt while α-chlorostyrene seems unreactive toward polymerizing agents.
