Abstract

Using hydroxyl-containing olygoketones with different condensation degrees and dichloranhydrides of isophthalic and terephthalic acids, polyetheretherketones (PEEK) were synthesized by means of acceptor-catalytic polycondensation, and their properties were investigated. It was shown that PEEK possesses a better solubility, a higher molecular weight and is characterized by high thermal and mechanical properties. The correlation between some properties of polyethers and the degree of condensation of olygoketones was also investigated. (C) 1999 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
