A series of the wholly aromatic polyazomethines (PAM) having flexible side chains was synthesized by solution and melt polycondensation of 2,5-dialkoxyterephthalaldehydes and aromatic diamines. The solution polycondensation was carried out at 80°C for 24 h in 1,3-dimethyl-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2(1H)-pyrimidinone (DMPU)/N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) mixtures. The melt polycondensation was conducted in N2 atmosphere at 200°C for 2,8 h. All of the polymers were soluble in CCl4, CHCl3, THF, benzene, toluene, etc. The inherent viscosity (ηinh), measured at 30°C in CHCl3, was 0,13-0,32 dL/g, and 5% weight loss in TG curves appeared at 365-390°C in N2 atmosphere. The electrical conductivities of I2-treated dialkoxy-substituted PAM were low, 10-4 〈 σ 〈 10-6 S/cm, compared with unsubstituted I2-treated PAM.
