N-Methyl-p-aminophenol was polymerized by oxidative couplng in the aqueous iron chelate solution in the presence of oxygen, and black precipitate of oligo-(N-methyl-p-aminophenol) was formed quantitatively. In this oxidative polymerization reaction, methyl group attached to N in the monomer was partly eliminated, and it was clarified by the infrared spectra from the fact that the absorption of ${\delta}\;asym\;CH_3\;1460\;cm^{-1}$ and ${\delta}\;sym\;CH_3\;1380\;cm^{-1}$ in acetone insoluble fraction was much weaker than that in acetone soluble fraction. From Thermo-gravimetric analysis, oligo-(N-methyl-p-aminophenol) showed about 40% weight loss at $600^{\circ}C$ and it was less heat-resistant than oligo (p-aminophenol) that methyl group was not contained. In pyrolysis of oligo-(N-methyl-p-aminophenol) in He atmosphere, monomer N-methyl-p-aminophenol and water were formed, and in the pyrolytic gases, $H_2,\;CO,\;CO_2$ were detected by gas chromatography. From the above facts, to the structural change on oligo-(N-methyl-p-aminophenol) when it was heat-treated, it was considered that original linear structure was partly degraded, and the most of the oligomer was to go in with melt polycondensation to form polymer, and heat-resistant cyclic structure was formed at a time.
