Synthesis and Characterization of Chiral Poly(Amide-Imide) Containing L-Alanine


Article Preview

A novel chiral poly(amide imide) containing L-alanine was synthesized by direct polycondensation reaction of newly synthesized N,N’-(4,4’-diphthaloyl)-bis-L-alanine diacid with 4,4’-diaminodiphenyl ether in a medium consisting of N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP), triphenylphosphite (TPP), calcium chloride (CaCl2), and pyridine. The new chiral diimide-diacid monomer was synthesized by direct reaction of 3,3’-4,4’-Biphenyl tetracarboxylic acid dianhydride with L-alanine in acetic acid under refluxing conditions. The resulting compounds were obtained in quantitative yields and high purity. The synthetic diacid monomer was characterized by elemental analysis, 1H-NMR spectroscopy, FT-IR techniques and specific rotation, the obtained polymer was characterized by FTIR techniques, specific rotation and solubility testing.
