Poly(arylene ethers) have already been established as valuable engineering thermoplastics. They are generally amorphous and are hydrolytically, dimensionally and thermally stable. Incorporating phosphorus linkages into the polymer backbone could generate new interest in flame resistant applications of such systems. This research is based on synthesizing novel engineering thermoplastics utilizing bis-halogenated phenyl phenyl phosphine oxide monomers, and diphenols. This polymerization involves the nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction between a diphenol, such as Bisphenol-A, and bis-halogenated phenyl phenyl phosphine oxides.
