Poly(1,3[2-methoxy-4-hydroxy-5-acetylphenylene]butylene) was prepared by Friedel-Craft polycondensation of 2-hydroxy, 4-methoxyacetophenone and 1,4-butane-diol in presence of poiyphosphoric acid catalyst. The polymer samples were characterized by IR spectra, TGA and their Mn determined by nonaqueous titration. Viscosity measurents in DMSO showed that solutions exhibited normal behaviour.
Polymers were complexed with Cu(II), Ni(II), Mn(II), Co(II) and Zn(II) and characterized. Chelation and ion exchange properties were also studied by employing the batch equilibrium method.
