Abstract

Challenging commercial polycarbonate: Suzuki polycondensation afforded a high-molar-mass poly(meta-phenylene) (see structure) which displays not only outstanding toughness, convenient processability, and a high glass-transition temperature, but also considerable resistance against environmental stress-cracking; thus, it rivals high-performance polycarbonate in its fundamental properties
