Poly(dipropargyl terephthalate), a high molecular weight linear soluble polymer, was prepared by the so-called oxidative polymerization by oxidation of the two terminal hydrogen atoms of dipropargyl terephthalate. The polymer undergoes easy thermal and radiation cross-linking via solid (crystalline) state topochemical polymerization of its two conjugated triple bonds (diacetylene linkages) of the main chain without changes in polymer crystalline lattice. This type of polymer appears attractive for preparation of (self-) cross-linkable thermosetting fibres.
