Composition useful for molding into articles such as food containers, beverage bottles, cured structural plastics and the like comprising molding grade linear or unsaturated polyester or polycarbonate (a) containing a mono-4-acryloxystyryl or bis-4-acyloxystyryl compound or (b) having reacted therewith or copolymerized therein a styryl residue derived from a mono-4-acryloxystyryl or bis-4-acyloxystyryl compound, having the formula ##STR1## wherein R.sup.4 and R.sup.5 represent the acyl radical and the other radicals are as defined in the specification.

Preferred compositions comprise a linear polyester containing a styryl residue as an integral part of the polymer chain. The styryl residues absorb ultraviolet radiation in the range of about 250 to about 390 nm. The residues are non-extractable from the polymer and stable at the conditions at which the polymers are manufactured and processed.
