A multi-step preparation of 4-vinylbenzeneacetic acid from the readily available 1,4-diethylbenzene is described. The method uses cobalt (II) catalyzed oxidation of 1,4-diethylbenzene to 4-ethylacetophenone followed by oxidative rearrangement of the latter to 4-ethylbenzeneacetic acid, selective photochlorination to produce 4-(1'-chloroethyl)benzeneacetic acid, and finally base-catalyzed dehydrochlorination of the latter to afford the title compound.
