Work was continued on the synthesis of polybeta-alkyl-p-styrene sulfonate salt corrosion-inhibotors. A synthesis plan was followed which resulted in the synthesis of lauro-, palmito-, and stearophenone octyl-, undecyl-, pentadecyl-, and heptadecyl-phenol-carbinol beta-heptyl-, beta-decyl- , beta-tetradecyl-, and beta-hedxadecyl-styrene and polybeta-heptyl- and beta- hexadecyl-styrene. Emphasis placed on the improvement of synthesis and analytical procedures resulted in significant progress. Results obtained from three polymerization attempts were useful in the solution of a major contamination problem encountered previously, but these results did not contribute to the formation of higher molecular weight problems.
