This paper reports the reaction of monoiodoperfluorocycloakense with alkyl lithium and activated copper repectively resulting in various coupling products. Of particular interests are compounds of the following composition. The physical properties of the various compounds are given along with a discussion relating to the mechanistic pathways involved in the coupling reactions.
