Abstract:

Efforts are being made to synthesize a polymer capable of extended usage as an elastomer in the temperature range of -65 to above 500 C. The chemistry of polyfluoroaromatics has reached a stage where the synthesis of many polytetrafluorophenylene-type polymers appears to be imminent. Many new vinylic-type polyfluorocarbons have been synthesized, but greater quantities of them are needed for polymerization and for studies of the polymer properties. It is planned to undertake the complete synthesis of aromatic fluorocarbons on a scale large enough to insure a rapid synthesis of the desired potential thermally stable molecular structures and to evaluate their important physical and chemical properties.
