Meta-linked polyphenyl ethers show considerable promise as high-temperature radiation-resistant lubricants. They are far superior to present-day products in oxidation, thermal and radiation stability, comparing favorably with the most stable aromatics such as poly-phenyls, aromatic silanes, etc. In contrast to other high-melting aromatic compounds, the ethers are liquids with superior viscosity-temperature properties and good lubrication characteristics as measured in laboratory rig tests… CONTINUE READING
