This work describes a facile method by which a polymerizable hindered amine light stabilizer, 4‐(10‐undecylidene)‐2,2,6,6‐tetramethylpiperidine, was prepared in a single‐step procedure by means of a Wittig reaction. The monomer was successfully copolymerized with ethylene with a rac‐[dimethylsilylenebis(4,5,6,7‐tetrahydro‐1‐indenyl)]zirconium dichloride/methylalumoxane catalyst system.
