Chemistry and Pharmacology
Polyamideamines with a sequence of two amide and one amine linkage in a main chain were synthesized from the polyaddition of 2-isopropylidene-4-alkyl-3-oxazolin-5-ones and primary diamines. The polyaddition reaction proceeded through 1,4-conjugate addition of an amine group to 3-oxazolin-5-one and subsequent ring opening of the intermediate addition product with another amine. Although aliphatic diamines gave oily polymers, xylylenediamines afforded amorphous solid polymers. The reduced viscosities and polymer melt temperature of the polymers were 0.05-0.12 and 90-130°C., respectively.
