In this work, poly-hydrazide (PH) is designed and prepared from vegetable oil, hydrazine hydrate and dichloroethane. Nitrogen atoms are fixed in the main chain of the polymers to modify the polarity. The effectiveness of the PHs on four crude oil was tested as pour point depressants as well as paraffin inhibiters. The results showed that the highest pour point reduction depression was achieved as 10.6℃. The paraffin crystal morphology studies were conducted on simulated crude oil to elucidate
