Abstract : Copolymers of methylidine phthalide with styrene, acrylonitrile, and methyl methacrylate are reported. Measurement of their glass transition temperatures (T sub g s) by thermomechanical and dynamic mechanical techniques leads to an extrapolated value for the T sub g of poly(methylidine phthalide) of 370-380C. The introduction of phthalide groups into carbon-chain polymers so that part of the ring lies in the main chain leads to a sharp increase in heat resistance. (Author)
