Paper Abstract

Hydrogen bonding between several novolak oligomers as donors and phenylsulfoxide as acceptor was investigated as a model for the interaction of inhibitors with o,o-connected phenolic blocks in practical novolak resins. It was found that the attraction of the novolak dimer for the acceptor was more than twice as strong as that of the corresponding monomeric phenol. In a non-polar solvent, carbon tetrachloride, the higher oligomers assume cyclic conformations where all hydrogen bonds are internally saturated. There are, however, indications, that in sufficiently polar solvents these cyclic structures open up and that the acyclic oligomers then interact strongly with hydrogen bond acceptors.
