The kinetics of transesterification in blends of thermotropic copoly(oxybenzoate-ethylene terephthalate) and polycarbonate at melt state were analysed quantitatively with 13C nuclear magnetic resonance, and were then modelled by a phenomenological equation. It was found that the activation energy for the transesterification reaction between the poly(oxybenzoate) segment in copoly(oxybenzoate-ethylene terephthalate) and polycarbonate was more than twice that for the transesterification reaction between the poly(ethylene terephthalate) segment and polycarbonate (i.e. 94.6 versus 41.8 kcal/mol). This is probably due to the stronger chemical bond in oxybenzoate-oxybenzoate that in ethylene-terephthalate. Additionally, owing to the rigid-rod nature of the poly(oxybenzoate) segment, the frequency factor in the transesterification reaction in poly(oxybenzoate) segment and polycarbonate is much higher than that in poly(ethylene terephthalate) segment and polycarbonate.
