The goal of this research is to polymerize (E,E)-[6.2]-(2,5)furanophane to give a linear polymer. It will be synthesized by a 1,8-Hofmann Elimination using trimethyl-[(E)-3-(5-methyl-2-furyl)allyl] ammonium iodide. This diene will then be polymerized. The resulting polymeric [3.2] furanophane will then be oxidized to form a polymeric macrocycle tetra ketone. This compound will be tested for cation complexation.
