Abstract

The crystallisation behaviour of copolymers of telechelic poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene ether) segments with terephthalic methyl ester endgroups (PPE-2T), 13 wt% crystallisable tetra-amide segments of uniform length units (two-and-a-half repeating unit of nylon-6,T) and dodecanediol (C12) was studied. The crystallisation rate of the T6T6T units was found to be very high despite the high Tg/Tm ratio. The supercooling (Tm−Tc) as measured by DSC is 18 °C at a cooling rate of 20 °C/min. WAXD has elucidated that the tetra-amide units remain organised in the melt.
