The synthesis of polyestercarbonates (PEC) containing only terephthalate units (TPEC) and only phthalate units (PPEC) was performed. PEC is a generic name representing various copolymers containing carbonate and ester units. The results showed that the glass transition temperature increases with (tere)phthalate content due to the intramolecular stiffening effect of (tere)phthalate units and the shortened intermolecular distance.
