Abstract

Bis (4,4'-benzoyl chloride) dimethylsilane (SiCO) and 2,2-bis (4,4'-benzoyl chloride) propane (CCO) were synthesized and polymerized with butanediol, resorcinol, or hydroquinone. The polymers of SiCO-hydroquinone (SiCO-Hyd) and SiCO-resorcinol (SiCO-Res) possess glass transition temperatures 25-degrees-C lower than their carbon analogs but the less aromatic SiCO-butanediol (SiCO-BDO) and CCO-butanediol (CCO-BDO) polymers have similar glass transitions. Silicon containing polymers are superior to their carbon counterparts in thermal stability. Furthermore, polyarylates of excellent thermal stability and solubility were synthesized from SiCO/terephthaloyl chloride and hydroquinone.
