Anionic copolymerizations of 2,3,4,5,6‐pentafluorostyrene (PFS) with 1,3‐divinylbenzene (m‐DVB) and 1,4‐divinylbenzene (p‐DVB) were performed by using lithium diisopropylamide as an initiator in order to synthesize the fluorine‐containing linear polymer with pendant vinyl groups. The products were soluble copolymers possessing both PFS and DVB monomeric units, and the DVB monomeric unit in copolymer had pendant vinyl group. This copolymerization reaction took a much longer time than that of styrene with DVB. The copolymerization parameter of this system was examined from copolymer composition curves. In this system, m‐DVB was found to be more reactive than p‐DVB. The reactivity of copolymerization was largely influenced by the reactivity of active species. © 1993 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
