Abstract


The poly{[p-(azidomethyl)styrene]-co-(5-vinyltetrazole)} was successfully synthesized by azidation of a copolymer, such as poly-{[p-(chloromethyl)styrene]-co-acrylonitrile} under microwave irradiation. This method was very simple, rapid, and carried out in a controllable way. In this greener approach, the chlorine atom of the copolymer was easily replaced by azide group, and the cyanide group was converted to tetrazole moiety under microwave irradiation. The synthesized copolymers were characterized by spectral analysis, and their thermal properties were estimated using thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry.
