Abstract

The oxidative polymerization of 5-amino-1-naphthyloxy acetic acid, 5-amino-1-naphthyloxydifluro acetic acid and 3-(5-aminonaphthyl-oxy)-1-propanesulfonic acid was achieved with reasonable yield (30-56%), and modest electrical conductivity (10-4-10-5 S/cm). The sodium salts of the polymers are soluble in water and exhibit fluorescence.
