Abstract

The bis-t-butyl- and bis-neopentyl glycol- diesters of α, α, α', α'-tetramethyladipic acid were synthesized via their diacid chlorides. α, α, α', α'-Tetramethyladipic acid was first prepared by a free radical coupling reaction of pivalic acid because it is not commercially available. The products of all syntheses were characterized by NMR and infrared spectra.
