The preparation of methacrylic and p-styrenesulfonic acid esters of the antibacterial agent thymol (2-isopropyl-5-methylphenol) and their characterization by IR, 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy is described. The monomers are radically polymerizable and give polymers in which thymol is covalently attached to the polymer backbone by ester links.
