Abstract : Liquid polymers were prepared from vinyl thiolacetate with Na and liquid NH3. IR spectra and analytical data indicated that ammonolysis of the polymer has occurred followed by dithiolane ring formation throughout the chain. The polymers have been evaluated as radioprotectiveAGENTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS MADE AS TO THE COURSE OF FURTHER WORK WITH THIS SYSTEM. (Author)
