The imides of maleic and succinic acids derivatives such as N-(4-isopropylbenzyl)
succinimideта N-(4-isopropylbenzyl)maleimidewere synthesized. The compounds were
obtained by interaction of imides dicaboxylic acids and p-chloromethylcumeneasstartingmaterialswithpotassiumcarbonateastheonlycoreagent
in dimethylformamide media.
Reactivity of imides with p-chloromethylcumene was investigated. The obtained compounds
can be used as intermediates for synthesis of transmitters of the polymerization chain.
Thestructureof the of obtained compounds is confirmed by physical and chemical methods,
elemental and functional analysis.
