Synthesis and characterization of new polyureas derived from 4-(4′-Methoxyphenyl)urazole

Abstract

4-(4′-Methoxyphenyl)urazole (MPU) was prepared from 4-methoxybenzoic acid in five steps. The reaction of monomer MPU with n-isopropylisocyanate was performed at room temperature in N,N-dimethylformamide solution, and the resulting bis-urea derivative was obtained in high yield and was finally used as a model for polymerization reaction. The step-growth polymerization reactions of monomer MPU with hexamethylene diioscyanate, isophorone diioscyanate, and toluene-2,4-diioscyanate were performed in N,N-dimethylacetamide solution in the presence of pyridine as a catalyst. The resulting novel polyureas have an inherent viscosity (ηinh) in a range of 0.07–0.21 dL/g in DMF and sulfuric acid at 25°C. These polyureas were characterized by IR, 1H-NMR, elemental analysis, and TGA. Some physical properties and structural characterization of these novel polyureas are reported. © 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 85: 1141–1146, 2002
