Abstract : Copolyamides were prepared by in situ polymerization from p-Aminobenzoylcaprolactam and caprolactam systems initiated with sodium hydride. The microstructure of the copolymers as determined by 13C solution NMR varied from alternating to blocks of aliphatic and/or aromatic units depending on the reaction conditions and the ratio of the comonomers. The solid-state CP/MAS 13C NMR were consistent with solution studies. Detailed interpretation was difficult due to large linewidth and number of resonances. Natural abundance CP/MAS 15N spectra were found to less complicated. Based on these results and 15N studies with model amides, 15N CP/MAS was shown to be a useful technique for probing copolymer composition and microstructure.
