The preparation of poly(amide thioether)s by addition of ethanedithiol to diallylamides in the presence or absence of peroxide catalysts is reported for the first time. Diallylamide monomers N,N'-diallyloxalamide, N,N'-diallylmalonamide and N,N'-diallylterephthalamide have been prepared by aminolysis of the corresponding esters with allylamine. The structures of the resulting polymers have been elucidated by elemental microanalysis and H-1 NMR and IR spectroscopy. The polymers obtained both as Markovnikov and anti-Markovnikov types of addition are highly crystalline compounds.
