A novel diepoxide containing paracyclophane was synthesized by peracid oxidation of a known paracyclophane diene. The resulting diepoxide was characterized. It was investigated as a potential monomer for a cyclophane containing polyether by cationic ring opening polymerization. None of the standard catalyst systems for such a polymerization were successful in producing polymer.

Keywords: Cationic polymerization, cyclophane, diepoxide, macrocycle, Dienes, literature, polymerization, Delta, x-frequency, Hofmann elimination.
