Paper Abstract

In this paper we report a series of side-chain polymers bearing a push-pull azo-moiety, from pseudo-stylbene type molecules. The azobenzene monomer is chemically incorporated through radical copolymerization in: poly(methacrylate), poly(styrene); and poly(oxazoline) matrices. The different classes of azo-polymers are discussed comparatively to one another from the point of view of: solubility, molecular weights, glass transition temperatures and thermal stability, chromophore contents, and as well as from the point of view of their spectral features.
