The purpose of this research was to prepare ~nd characterize a number of new compounds which would function both as a monomer and a soap, i.e., a vinyl-soap. This was accomplished by incorporating in the same molecule an activated vinyl group and a long-chain hydrocarbon terminating in a carboxyl group. Thus, the alkali-metal salts of these compounds would be expected to both polymerize and act as emulsifying agents and therefore represent a class of new compounds of both potential commercial and scientific interest. The three types of vinyl soaps here prepared for the first time are: a styrene, a vinylketone (acrylophenone) and an acrylamido acid.
