Abstract : This patent pertains to new fluorinated substituted ethylenic compounds which are 2,3,4,5,6-pentafluoro-alpha-(trifluoromethyl)benzyl alcohol, (1,2,2,2-tetrafluoroethyl)perfluorobenzene and (1-bromo-1,2,2,2-tetrafluoroethyl)perfluorobenzene. The new compounds are useful as intermediates in the preparation of perfluorostyrene. Pyrolysis of the aforesaid perfluorobenzenes gives perfluorostyrene and of the first of these perfluorobenzenes, alpha-hydroheptafluorostyrene, also.
