Title: POLYMERIZATION THROUGH COORDINATION. Period covered: October 1, 1955 to September 30, 1956

Abstract

The preparation and properties of metal-containing polymers in which the metal ion is held in the polymer through coordinate bonds was studied. It is expected that such polymers will have exceptional stability toward heat and chemical reagents. The background for the formation of such polymers is presented and the principles involved in the preparation of plastic materials are discussed. Pertinent literature references are cited. Chelate polymers containing bis- beta -diketones, bis-8-hydroxyquinolines, beta - hydroxyethylpolyamines, and bis- alpha -amino acids have been investigated, as well as polymeric phthalocyanines. The most promising results have been obtained with the polymeric phthalocyanines, which have molecular weights up to about 30,000. (auth)

  • The study of the formation of polymers containing coordinnted heawy metals has been continued. Bischelating agents which are bidentnte should form linear polymers by coordination with tetracoordinate metal ions. Studies have been made of polymers of this sont containing zinc, nickel, and copper(II) coordinated with bis'-thiopicolinamides, bis-fiuorinated 1,3-diketones, bis-amino acids, and bis-8-hydroxyquinolines. The reaction of tetrahydroxy aromntic compounds with silicon tetrachloride is of this type and has been studied. Bischelating agents which are tridentate should form linear polymers by coordinntion with hexacoordinate metal ions. A brief study of coordination compounds of two tridentate amino acids ( beta -amino glutaric acidmore » and iminodiacetic acid) showed thnt such polymers would not have great stability, so the matter was not pursued funther. The study of the formntion of polymeric copper phthalcyanines from derivntives of pyromellitic acid has been continued, but no methcd for the preparation of high molecular weight polymers has yet been found. It has been demonstrated that polymers can be formed by the condensntion of monomeric coordination compounds which contain uncoordinated functional groups such as hydroxyl and carboxyl. Although the mnterials which have been obtained are only trimers and do not show good heat stability, their formation is encouraging, as it furnishes a tool for the study of the polymerization process. An apparatus for the measurement of heat stabilities of polymers is described. (auth)« less
  • The usefulness of Mo/sub 3/Al as a container for the melting of Ti has been determined under a number of experimental conditions. Although this container is wet by the Ti during melting, only a total of 3% of Mo and Al is taken into the melt if the time and temperature of melting is held to a minimum. (auth)
  • Linear polyethylenes have recently been developed which have empirical chemical formulas identical to those of common polyethylenes, but which differ in the molecular arrangement of the polymer chain. The physical properties of two linear polyethylenes were measured before and after gamma irradiation to afford a comparison with conventional polyethylene. Measurements were made of the following properties as functions of total radiation dosage up to 109 roentgens: tensile strength, elongation, hardness, imnpact strengih, specific gravity, water absorption, heat distortion tcmperature, dielectric constant, arc resistance, color, and infrared absorption. In addition, densities were determined as functions of both radiation dosage and temperature.more » (auth)« less
