Crosslinked copoly(styrene-p-nitrophenylacrylate) (1) was hydrolyzed to copoly(styrene-acrylic acid) (2) while further transformation with thionyl chloride gave copoly(styrene-acryloyl chloride) (3). Room temperature reaction of copoly(styrene-acryloyl chloride) (3) in acetonitrile with aromatic amines (aniline, pentafluoroaniline) and aromatic hydrazines (phenylhydrazine, pentafluorophenylhydrazine) gave the corresponding amides (4, 5) and hydrazides (6, 7). The swelling abilities of these amides and hydrazides depended on the type of functional group (amido, hydrazido), aromatic moiety (phenyl ring, pentafluorophenyl ring) and solvent polarity (chloroform, dimethylformamide, perfluorodecaline, perfluorooctane, perfluorocyclic ethers C8F16O). No significant enhancement in swelling capacity in perfluoro carbonated solvents was achieved by substitution of the phenyl ring by fluorosubstituted rings.
