Imines (ketimines and azomethines) derived from p-dibenzoylbenzene (DB) and terephthalic aldehyde (TA) and two aromatic amines: aniline and 2,6-dimethylaniline have been investigated. Compounds were synthesized via condensation of amines with carbonyl monomers in DMA or amine solution. When using DMA...
