A series of poly(acrylhydrazones) has been prepared by the condensation of dihydrazides with dialdehydes and diketones. The dihydrazides included those derived from isophthalic, sebacic, and adipic acids. Terephthalaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, p-diacetylbenzene, and 2,5-hexanedione were the dicarbonyl compounds used. Polymers derived from terephthalaldehyde were of high molecular weight. The polymers varied in crystalinity, fusion point, and solubility in the expected manner. Thermal and hydrolytic stabilities were moderately good. Tough films were cast from a number of the soluble polymers. These films could be isolubilized by reaction with cupric acetate.
