Polyalkylenebenzoxazoles of high molecular weight (inherent viscosity values from 0.76 to 2.95) were prepared from 4,6‐diaminoresorcinol dihydrochloride and aliphatic diacids in polyphosphoric acid by heating at 180 to 200°C for 3–5 h. Melting points of the polymers ranged from 148 to 423°C, depending on the length of the alkylene chain. Glass transition temperatures were relatively low, ranging from 50 to 100°C and did not show the pronounced odd/even effect noted for melting points. In all cases, r…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
