Abstract

Three series of poly (aryl ether sulfone)s (PAESs) containing the phthalazinone moiety in the polymer backbone were synthesized by solution polycondensation of bis(4-chlorophenyl) sulfone with three commercial bisphenols and 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2,3-phthalazin-1-one. Bisphenol-A, hydroquinone, and bis(4-hydroxyphenyl) sulfone, or bisphenol-S, were selected as the commercial bisphenols for copolymerization. The synthesized polymers exhibited very high glass transition temperatures and excellent thermooxidative properties. They also showed superior mechanical properties and fair rheological properties. The introduction of relatively flexible moieties, such as benzene rings, onto the poly(phthalazinone ether sulfone) (PPES) chain led to a decrease in glass transition temperature with respect to the phthalazinone homopolymer. However, the processability of PPES was improved dramatically by the addition of these commercial bisphenols. The properties of synthesized PAESs can be tailored by changing the molar ratios of bisphenols to phthalazinone monomer. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
