The work described in this thesis was concerned with the synthesis and metathesis ring .opening polymerization of some fluorinated norbornenes and norbornadienes. The objectives of the work were to synthesise some new stereoregular fluoropolymers.This thesis is divided into five chapters. In the first chapter the background of the olefin metathesis reaction is reviewed. Chapter Two gives details of the synthesis of some fluorinated norbornenes and norbornadienes. The third chapter discusses the ring opening metathesis polymerization of a series of relatively simple monomers, and the characterization of the polymers produced, by (^13)C n.m.r. and infrared spectroscopy. In the fourth chapter the polymerization of a series of more complicated monomers is described. The final chapter details some of the physical properties of the polymers.
