Most aromatic polyimides and copolyimides show a β relaxation process below their α relaxation processes in dynamic mechanical and dielectric measurements. The origin of this β relaxation has been under active discussion. In order to gain a better understanding of the origin of the β relaxation process, the dynamic mechanical behavior of a series of segmented rigid‐rod polyimide and copolyimide films with different dianhydrides and diamines has been systematically studied. For some of the polymers, c…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
