A unique class of perfluorocycloalkenyl (PFCA) aryl ether monomers was synthesized from commercially available perfluorocycloalkenes (PFCAs) and bisphenols in good yields. This facile one pot reaction of per- fluorocycloalkenes, namely, octafluorocyclopentene (OFCP), and decafluorocyclohexene (DFCH), with bisphenols occurs at room temperature via an addition–elimination reaction in the presence of a base. The synthesis of PFCA monomers and their condensation with bisphenols lead to perfluorocycloalkenyl (PFCA) aryl ether homopolymers and copolymers with random and/or alternating polymer architectures.
