The terpolymeric resins abbreviated as PARG-I and PARG-II were synthesized by polyphosphoric acid (PPA) catalyzed polycondensation of p-hydroxyacetophenone, resorcinol and glycerol in 1:1:3 and 2:1:4 molar proportions respectively. The resins were characterized by various physico-chemical methods such as elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, UV-Vis and non-aqueous conduct metric titration. The thermokinetic parameters were determined using Freeman-Carroll and Sharp-Wentworth methods. The order of degradation was determined by FC method and confirmed by SW method.
