Abstract

Sulfur-based polymers are well known for their excellent chemical resistance and wide temperature range of application. In the paper, a series of aliphatic and aromatic polydithiocarbonate and polytrithiocarbonate is synthesized and characterized. The reaction is described as a one pot procedure in which all the monomers and intermediates are brought together to produce the required polymer in one single step. The effects of the reaction conditions as well as the type of PTC used are studied from the yield and molecular weight of the polymer produced.
