Abstract: Abstract 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…
