the corresponding wholly aromatic polyketones.

Novel aromatic polyketones (8a, 8b) without ether linkage in the main chain were successfully synthesized via nickel-mediated aromatic coupling polymerization of bis(chlorobenzoyl)dimethoxybiphenyls (3a, 3b). The polymers affording flexible films were obtained in the reaction where an excess amount of bipyridyl and a stoichiometric amount of the nickel(II) bromide were present. The resulting polyketones (8a, 8b) have sufficiently high molecular weight (inherent viscosity: 0.59 dL/g for polyketone 8a; 0.35 dL/g for polyketone 8b) and a highly amorphous nature with a rather high glass transition temperature: 218 °C for polyketone 8a; 192 °C for polyketone 8b.

AB - A new polymerization reaction for aromatic polyketones is described based on palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling of aromatic diacid chlorides and bis(trimethylstannane) monomers. This method addresses some of the shortcomings of current synthetic approaches to this valuable class of thermoplastics. Most importantly, the polymerization can be carried out under mild conditions and polymer backbones free of ether linkages can be realized. Several high molecular weight, soluble polyketones having good thermal stability are synthesized using this polymerization reaction. An improved synthesis of aromatic bis-(trimethylstannane) monomers is also described that provides monomers in high yield.
