Summary The polycondensations of L-aspartic acid (1) with aromatic aminocarboxylic acid, 4-aminobenzoic acid (2a), 4-aminophenylacetic acid (2b), 4-aminomethylbenzoic acid (2c), 4-(4-aminophenyl)butyric acid (2d), and 4-aminocinnamic acid (2e) were carried out using phosphoric acid as a catalyst. The obtained copolymers consiting of the succinimide and amide units, poly(succinimide-co-amide) (3), were soluble in DMF and DMSO except for that with 2e. The thermal properties differed with varying the 2 unit in 3, i.e., the Tgs of 3a–c (99 ∼ 138°C) were higher than those of 3d (81 ∼ 1 01°C), the apparent difference in the Tm between 3a–d did not observed, and the Td decreased in the order of 3a, 3c 〉 3d 〉 3b.
