Copolymers have been prepared by condensing a mixture of either 4-chloro or 4-bromosalicylic acid and any one of the comonomer like salicylic acid,p-hydroxybenzoic acid,p-aminosalicylic acid,p-aminobenzoic acid,p-cresol andp-halo(chloro, bromo)phenol with formaldehyde in the presence of 5M H2SO4. Copolymer composition of each of the copolymer has been estimated on the basis of halogen content and/or on the basis of results of non-aqueous titrations of the copolymer against standard sodium methoxide and/or tetra-n-butylammonium hydroxide. The IR spectral characteristics of copolymers have been noted. The viscometric and thermal studies of copolymers have also been carried out.
