Three copolymers of poly(ether sulfone) and poly(ether ether sulfone) with the same composition but different sequence distribution were synthesized by three kinds of methods. Their molecular aggregation in dichloromethane was studied by fluorescence spectrophotometer and electron microscope. The experimental results revealed that the formation of intermolecular excimers in alternative copolymer (A50) dichloromethane solution were observed at a A50 concentration about 1.6 × 10−2 g/mL by the fluorescence analysis, but the formation of intermolecular excimers in dichloromethane were not found for random copolymer (R50) and block copolymer (B50). The electron micrograph of three copolymer films, heat-treated at 200°C for 7 days, presented a diffraction micrograph, which suggest that three copolymer molecular aggregation is changed from a randomly coiled amorphous phase to an ordered one, and the order structure of alternative copolymer (A50) was the most distinct in three copolymers. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
