Abstract: Abstract Polyimide blends consisting of pyromellitic dianhydride/4,4′‐oxydianiline (PMDA/ODA) and biphenyl‐tetracarboxylic dianhydride/p‐phenylene diamine (BPDA/PDA) show a distinct glass transition behavior at temperatures lower than each component does. Disruption of molecular packing by blending of polymers having dissimilar interaction sites leads to a significant increase in molecular mobility at much lower temperatures. This is examined by laminating two pieces of film cast from the blend and measuring …
