Abstract

Abstract x, x′-Dimethoxy- p-xylene undergoes self-polymerisation in presence of stannic chloride. The first nine products have been separated using gel permeation chromatography and structures suggested on the basis of i.r. and mass spectral measurements. A mechanism has been proposed for the reaction involving the formation of two complexes between stannic chloride and DMPX, one through the ether oxygen and the other through the aromatic ring.
