Abstract : It is an object of this invention to produce a relatively inexpensive low surface energy polymer. It is another object of this invention to produce a polymer which is not highly fluorinated yet has a low surface energy. It is a further object of this invention to produce a polyester prepolymer from a tertiary fluorinated alcohol and a carboxylic acid. It is yet another object of this invention to provide new flourine containing polyester prepolymers terminated with both dicarboxylic acid chlorides and dihydroxyl groups. These and other objects are achieved by reacting a fluorinated alcohol, preferably tertiary, with a carboxylic acid having no fluorination on the alpha carbon.
