Our research is focused on the general synthesis and characterization of new classes of thermoplastic and thermosetting engineering polymers from thiophene-based monomers and recently discovered synthetic methodologies. The approaches involve detailed investigations of the synthesis of thiophene-based polyaramides, aromatic and aliphatic polyesters, polybenzbisoxazoles, polyarylene ether ketones, polyimides, polyarylenes and polyarylene sulfides using inexpensive monomers synthesized from thiophene-2,5-diacid chloride made in 90 yield from adipic acid and thionyl chloride and halothiophene derivatives. jg p8
