Abstract : Decreases of up to 50% in the moisture uptake of polycyanurate networks based on 2,2-bis(4- cyanatophenyl)propane (BADCy) and 1,1-bis(4-cyanatophenyl)ethane (LECy) were observed when analogous networks containing a single methyl group ortho- to each aryl- cyanurate linkage were prepared by reduction and acid-catalyzed coupling of salicylic acid followed by treatment with cyanogen bromide and subsequent cyclotrimerization. The differences in water uptake were observed despite similar… Expand
