  • Patent number: 8344172
    Abstract: A process for making bis(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalates useful as antiplasticizers for thermoplastic polyesters is disclosed. Dimethyl terephthalate is reacted with an excess of an aryloxyalkanol in the presence of a condensation catalyst to produce an intermediate mixture comprising a bis(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalate, a mono(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalate, and unreacted aryloxyalkanol. This mixture continues to react at reduced pressure while unreacted aryloxyalkanol is removed and the mono-ester content is reduced to less than 1 mole % based on the combined amounts of mono- and bis-esters. Both steps are performed substantially in the absence of oxygen. Additional unreacted aryloxyalkanol is then removed to provide a purified bis(aryloxyalkyl)terephthalate having an overall purity of at least 98 mole % and a yellowness index less than 10.

  • Patent number: 8329841
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a photoreactive polymer that comprises a multi-cyclic compound in a main chain, and a polymerization method thereof. Since the photoreactive polymer according to the present invention comprises a multi-cyclic compound having a high glass transition temperature as a main chain, the thermal stability is excellent, and since the mobility of the main chain is relatively high as compared to that of an additional polymer, a photoreactive group can be freely moved in the main chain of the polymer. Accordingly, it is possible to overcome a slow photoreactive rate that is considered a disadvantage of a polymer material used to prepare an alignment film for known liquid crystal display devices.
