Abstract

Polyamides containing arylene sulfone ether linkages were synthesized from 4,4′[sulfonybis (p-phenyleneoxy)] dibenzoyl chloride (SPCI), 3,3′-[sulfonylbis (p-phenyleneoxy)] dibenzoyl chloride (SMCl) and various aromatic diamines (ARD), by solution and interfacial polymerization techniques. In solution polymerization, the effect of various acid acceptors such as propylene oxide (PO), lithium hydroxide (LiOH) in the presence of lithium chloride (LiCl), and triethylamine (TEA) on teh molecular weight of the olyamides was studied. The effect of structure of studied. The effect of structur of various aromatic diamine sof molecular weight and thermal properties of polyamides was also studied. The polyamides prepared were characterized by solution viscosity, elemental analysis thermo-gravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, and x-ray diffraction. Physical and thermal properties of polyamides prepared from SPcl and Ard were compared with the polyamides prepared from SMCl and ARD.
