Aromatic polyesters. I. Synthesis and characterization of poly(4,4′-thiodiphenyl phthalate)s

Authors


Abstract

Poly(4,4′-thiodiphenyl phthalates) (iso/tere) have been synthesized using both low temperature step-growth and phase-transfer catalyzed polymerization techniques. These polymers were characterized using conventional techniques like elemental analysis, solubility characteristics, X-ray diffraction, infrared, and proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. 4,4′-Thiodiphenyl dibenzoate was used as a model compound.
