Question

How is dacron obtained from ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid?

Solution 1

Dacron is obtained by condensation polymerization of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid with the elimination of water molecules. The reaction is carried out at 420 – 460 K in presence of a catalyst consisting of a mixture of zinc acetate and antimony trioxide.

Solution 2

The condensation polymerisation of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid leads to the formation of dacron
