Synthesis of Polynitrobenzene by Chemical Modification of Poly(N, N-dimethylaniline)
Nitrification of poly(<I>N,N</I>-dimethylaniline)(PDMA) was carried out to synthesize a new kind of poly(phenylene)(PP) derivative–polynitrobenzene(PNB). Characterization of PNB and the determination of another product showed that in this reaction almost all the N,N-dimethyl groups on PDMA were replaced by the nitro groups without degradation. A possible mechanism of this special reaction has been put forward.
