Monomolecular films of linear poly(vinyl benzoate) (PVBz) and of mixtures of linear PVBz and stearic acid, show properties similar to branched PVBz and its mixtures with stearic acid. Nuclear magnetic resonance of linear and branched PVBz show no phenyl-hydrogen splitting, chemical shift, or other differences in relative peak positions. These results are consistent with the structure of PVBz as derived from general mechanistic considerations. The unusual monolayer properties of this polymer may be attributed to superior contiguous alignment of aromatic rings and tighter packing, but not to branching.
