N-Glycidyl-2-oxazolidone was synthesized by the reaction of N-sodium-2-oxazolidone with epichlorohydrin. N-Glycidyl-2-oxazolidone was polymerized with such Lewis acids as boron trifluoride etherate and aluminum chloride to give a white powder. These polymers adsorbed phenol and methyl bromide effectively. In addition, the copolymerization of N-glycidyl-2-oxazolidone with styrene was carried out, and the amount of the adsorption of methyl bromide on the copolymers was measured. The amount of the adsorption of methyl bromide increased in the copolymers as the content of 2-oxazolidone moiety increased. A 1 : 1 molar complex of stannic chloride with N-glycidyl-2-oxazolidone was isolated; when the complex was heated, poly(N-glycidyl-2-oxazolidone) was obtained quantitatively.
