A New Hyperbranched Poly(arylene-ether-ketone-imide): Synthesis, Chain-End Functionalization, and Blending with a Bis(maleimide)


While aromatic polyimides have found widespread use as high-performance polymers, the present work addressed the need for organosoluble pre-imidized materials through the use of a hyperbranching scheme. The AB2 monomer, N-[3,5-bis(4-hydroxybenzoyl)benzene]-4-fluorophthalimide, was prepared from 4-fluoroisophthalic anhydride and 3,5-bis(4-hydroxybenzoyl… (More)
