Synthesis and Characterization of Poly(Arylene Ether Benzimidazole) Oligomers

Abstract

Several poly(arylene ether benzimidazole) oligomers were prepared by the nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction of a bisphenol benzimidazole and various alkyl-substituted aromatic bisphenols with an activated aromatic dihalide in N,N-dimethylacetamide. Moderate to high molecular weight terpolymers were obtained in all cases, as shown by their inherent… (More)
