Abstract

The goal of this experiment is to be able to design a new synthetic pathway to synthesizing 1,6-diiodo-E,E,E-1,3,5-hexatriene. By being able to synthesize 1,6-diiodo-E,E,E-1,3,5-hexatriene, it would allow us to be able to further polymerize 1,6-diiodo-E,E,E-1,3,5-hexatriene in a Urea inclusion complex to form highly ordered polyactylene. Three different synthetic pathways were taken where taken using three different catalysts. The reaction conditions were optimized for all reactions to improve the yield and order of the polyacetylene. It was found that some of our reaction conditions was able to give product that was able to be partially identified. Furthermore, the optimization of the reaction conditions allowed us to learn more about the formation of our target compound.
