Synthesis and Characterization of Aminated Poly(2,6-Dimethyl-1,4-Phenylene Oxide)
In this article, the chemical modification of poly(2, 6-dimethyl-1, 4-phenylene oxide) (PPO) was carried out by incorporating an amine group into the PPO backbone. A maximum monosubstitution degree of 65 mol % was reached. The effects of reaction conditions on the functional group content in PPO is discussed. The aminated PPO obtained was characterized by FTIR, H-1-NMR spectroscopy, nitrogen analysis, DSC, solubility test, and X-ray diffraction studies.
