Abstract

The synthesis of polyesters and copolyesters containing the bicycl o[2. 2.2]octane ring and 1,4-cycl ohexanedi acetic acid and 1,4-cyclohexanedimethanol spacers are discussed. The following homopolyesters were synthesized: poly[oxy(2-methyll, 4-phenylene)oxycarbonyl-l,4-bicyclo[2.2.2]octylenecarbonyl] I; and poly[oxy(2-chloro-l,4-phenylene)oxycarbonyl-l,4-bicyclo[2.2.2]octy-1 enecarbonyl] II. The following copolyesters were synthesized: poly[oxy (2-chl oro- 1,4-phenyl ene )oxycarbonyl-l ,4-bi cycl o[2. 2. 2]octyl enecarbonyl-co-oxy- (2-chloro-1,4-phenylene)oxysebacoyl] III; poly[oxy(2-methyl-l,4- phenylene)oxycarbonyl-l,4-bicyclo[2.2.2]octylene-co-oxy(2-methyl-l,4- phenyl ene)oxysebacoyl] IV; poly[oxy(2-methyl-l,4-phenylene)oxyterephthaloyl- co-oxy(2-methyl-l,4-phenylene)oxy-l,4-cyclohexanediacetoyl] V; poly[oxy(2-methyl-1,4-phenylene)oxyterephthaloyl-co-oxymethylene-1,4 cyclohexylenemethyleneoxyterephthaloyl] VI; and poly[oxy(2-chloro-1,4 phenylene)oxyterephthaloyl-co-oxymethylene-1,4 cyclohexylenemethyleneoxyterephthaloyl]VII. The resulting homopolyesters and copolyesters were characterized by proton NMR, DSC, TGA, IR, solution viscosity, and polarizing optical microscopy.
