    Abstract

    Cyclic oligomers [CO•C6H4•CO•O•CH 2•CH2•O]x (with x = 3-8) of poly(ethylene terephthalate) have been prepared by a polymer-supported reaction. They have been investigated by field desorption mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry. The particular stability of the cyclic trimer x = 3 is demonstrated by the results.
