Synthesis and Characterization of High Performance Terpolymer Resin Derived from 8-Hydroxyquinoline and Adipamide

Wasudeo Gurnule, Mangesh Thakre
A new terpolymer resin was synthesized from 8-Hydroxyquinoline and adipamide with formaldehyde by polycondensation method in the presence of 2M HCl as catalyst. The resin was characterized by elemental analysis and spectral methods, i.e. composition of terpolymer has been determined in the basis of their elemental analysis. The terpolymer resin has been characterized by UV-Visible, I.R. and NMR spectra. The number average molecular weight has been determined by conductometric titration in
