Copolymers of the title compound with urea, thiourea and toluene diisocyanate were synthesized. The copolymerizations with the urea and thiourea were conducted in water, while the copolymerization with toluene diisocyanate was conducted in dimethylformamide (DMF). All the polymerizations proved to be very exothermic in nature. The resulting polymers proved to be soluable only in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), dimethylformamide or concentrated formic acid. Inherent viscosity measurements showed the polymers to be low in molecular weight.
