Abstract

Novel aromatic polyimides prepared via the polymerization of monomeric reactants (PMR) approach and incorporating anthraquinone diamines in the main chain have been characterized. Imidization and crosslinking reaction profiles have been delineated by d.m.t.a. and the high-temperature mechanical and thermal properties of the thermoset resins examined. Elevated glass transition temperatures (> 300°C) are apparent in some resins while impairment of mechanical integrity is not evident below 450°C. All resins show good thermal and thermo-oxidative stability. © 1993.
