Application

Dimethyl terephthalate was used to synthesize silicone aromatic polyesters by the transesterification reaction with α,ω-bis(hydroxyalkyl)-terminated poly(dimethylsiloxane) in toluene. It was used in the synthesis of multiblock copolymers consisting of polyiso-butylene, dimethyl terephthalate and 1,4-butanediol.

General description
