Summary 6,6-Diethyl- (1a) and 6-methyl-6-propyl-5,7-dioxa-4,8-dioxo-1-vinylspiro[2.5]octane (1b) were synthesized by the acetalization of 2-vinylcyclopropane-1,1-dicarboxylic acid with 2- or 3-pentanone. The new monomers were characterized by IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The radical polymerization of the monomers 1a and 1b, in addition of 6,6-methyl-5,7-dioxa-4,8-dioxo-1-vinylspiro[2.5]octane (1c) and (exo/endo)-7-ethoxycarbonyl-2-oxo-7-vinyl-bicyclo[4.1.0]heptane (1d), was carried out in bulk with 2,2`-azoisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as the initiator. The polymer yield with 1d was only low. The polymerization of the monomers 1a and 1c resulted in cross-linked polymers, whereas in case of the polymerization of monomer 1b soluble polymers in a high yield were obtained.
