      This study reports the physical properties and gas permeation characteristics of polyarylates prepared by disubstitution of the bisphenolA bridge carbon. The results are compared with data from previously reported unsubstituted and mono-substituted polyarylates. Disubstitution is an effective method of changing the packing density, as measured by the d-spacing, and also increases the chain stiffness. The intersegmental spacing can be either decreased (by phenyl disubstitution) or significantly increased (by -CF3 disubstitution). Increased d-spacing in the case of -CF3 disubstitution increases permeabilities and reduces selectivities compared to the unmodified bisphenolA based polymer. The increased permeability and selectivity of the phenyl disubstituted polyarylates, in spite of the reduced d-spacing, supports an earlier finding that decreased bisphenol phenyl ring mobility tends to increase permeability.

    • Polymer structure effect on gas permeation characteristics in polyarylates

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      This paper reviews recent investigations of the factors which control gas transport in a series of highly aromatic polyarylates. The polymer physical properties which correlate with its intrinsic separation characteristics were elucidated by studying well-defined families of polyarylates. Molecular modelling was used to understand the effects of various substitutions in the polymer structure and the mechanism through which the polymer properties are affected. The effect of polymer chain mobility, conformation and packing density on the permeation characteristics are discussed.
