Abstract
A new series of polyarylate copolyesters were prepared by melt polycondensation of 1,4-diacetoxy-2,5-(α-phenylisopropyl)benzene with mixture of terephthalic acid and isophthalic acid in varying ratio. And their general properties such as the glass transition temperature, crystalline melting temperature, crystallinity and solubility were studied. The intrinsic viscosity values of the present polymers measured in a mixed solvent of phenol/p-chlorophenol/1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane ranged from 0.45 to 0.66 depending on the composition and molecular weight. The copolyesters containing greater than 20 mole % of isophthalic acid were found to be amorphous, whereas the homopolymer derived from terephthalic acid was semicrystalline with a melting point of 414℃. The glass transition temperatures of the polymers ranged from 165 to 180℃ depending on the composition. The copolyesters containing 50 mole % and greater of isophthalic acid moiety were soluble at room temperature in such common solvents as tetrahydrofuran, chloroform and N,N-dimethylformamide.
