Abstract:

The structures of poly p-phenylenebenzobisthiazole PBZT and polyp-phenylenebenzobisoxazole PBO fibers have been determined by fiber diffraction techniques see Reprint 4 for details. D-spacings were obtained from equatorial and meridional scans recorded on a four-circle diffractometer. Intensity data were derived from x-ray rotation patterns taken on Weissenberg and vacuum cylindrical cameras. Unit cells were found to be monoclinic and non- primitive, each containing two chains per cell. The conformational torsion angle between the bisthazole and phenylene units and the orientation of chains within the unit cells were obtained from a linked-atom least-squares LALS refinement procedure.
