A series of new acetylene-terminated phenylquinoxaline oligomers and diacetylene compounds have been prepared utilizing 4-(3-ethynylphenoxy)benzil. The amorphous materials with molecular weights from 500 to 1460 exhibited softening in the 25–160°C range with a strong polymerization exotherm reaching a maximum at 270–290°C. The addition nonvolatile cure provides materials which show excellent thermoxidative stability and processability for high-temperature matrix and adhesive resins.
