The homopolyester of 4- (4'-hydroxyphenoxy)benzoic acid (poly (4-HPBA)), was prepared under two different reaction conditions and compared with a sample provided by another research group. Depending on the synthetic route, different melting points, d.s.c, traces and crystal lattices were found. However, after repeated heating and cooling, one thermodynamically stable modification with a melting point of 370-375°C can be obtained. Copolyesters of 4-hydroxybenzoic acid and 4-(4'- hydroxyphenoxy)benzoic acid were prepared with various molar ratios either in the melt (condensation in bulk) or in solution. These copolyesters were characterized by elemental analyses, 1H n.m.r. spectroscopy, d.s.c, measurements, wide-angle X-ray scattering measurements at various temperatures, and optical microscopy. Whereas copolyesters prepared in solution do not melt below 500°C, those prepared by polycondensation in bulk show melting points down to approximately 260°C and form a nematic melt.
