Abstract : The photodegradation and biodegradation of polymers prepared from 4,4'-bis(chloroacetyl)diphenyl ether, 4,4'-bis(bromoacetyl)diphenyl ether and 4,4'-bis(2-bromopropionyl)diphenyl ether were investigated. The polymers included polyamines, prepared from piperazine, 4,4'-trimethylenedipiperidine and N,N'-dimethyl-1,3-propanediamine and polyesters prepared from adipic, suberic, azelaic, sebacic and 1,10- decanedicarboxylic acids.
