Two diacetylene monomers, 2,4-hexadiynylene bis(pentamethylbenzenesulphonate) HPMBS and 3,5-octadiynylene bis(pentamethylbenzenesulphonate) OPMBS have been prepared, purified and tested for thermal polymerization using a Perkin-Elmer DSC-2 instrument. Both samples give evidence of some thermal polymerization; HPMBS to a small extent in the solid phase and OPMBS to a large extent in the molten phase.
