Benzene and anthraquinone sulfone derivatives of poly(N-vinylcarbazole)

  • 34 Accesses

  • 2 Citations


Benzene and anthraquinonesulfonyl chlorides were reacted with poly-N-vinylcarbazole in presence of Friedel-Crafts catalyst to form the corresponding sulfonyl derivatives. The sulfonated poly-N-vinylcarbazoles were characterized by elemental analyses, IR spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis and evaluation of permittivity and loss-tangent behaviour with varying applied frequencies.
