Abstract:

Co-monomera A and B were the focus of this investigation because they demonstrate accelerated cure times at lower temperatures compared with monomer precursors 1-3. We have demonstrated bis-ortho-diynylarene BODA monomers undergo Bergman cyclopolymerizations to form hyper-branched, rigid naphthalene networks that can be further carbonized at 1000 C to form glassy carbon in high yield 80.
