m-dihydroxybenzene (16.5 g, 0.15 mol), BFBH (10.8 g, 0.03 mol), potassium carbonate (38.64 g, 0.28 mol), 4,4-dichlorodiphenylsulfone (DCDPS) (34.44 g, 0.12 mol), N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (120 ml) and toluene (30 ml) was added into a 500 mL three-necked flask equipped with a water segregator, a reflux condenser, a mechanical stirrer, and a thermometer.
Different proportion copolymers (as shown in Table 1) that contained sulfone and semi-aromatic amides units were synthesized through the polymerization of m-dihydroxybenzene, DCDPS and 1, 6-N, N'-bis(4-fluorobenzamide) hexane (BFBH) by the method of nucleophilic reaction using potassium carbonate as the catalyst.
