Abstract

The use of benzocyclobutene (BCB) in polymer chemistry has been extensive. Copolymers (PPXTA) of terephthaloyl chloride, 1, 2-dihydrocyclobutabenzene 3,6-diacid chloride (XTA, I) and phenylene diamine have been synthesized with varying mole % XTA. Here we present kinetic analysis on 100 mole % PPXTA to provide insight into the cross-linking reaction. Also, various BCB model compounds of rigid-rod polymers have been synthesized to demonstrate the broad applicability of this chemistry.
