Polyalkylene‐imides (i.e., aliphatic‐aromatic polyimides) were prepared smoothly in N‐methyl pyrollidone from straight chain aliphatic diamines and pyrromellitic dianhydride. Melting points of the polymers ranged from about 300 to 450°C, depending of the length of the alkylene chains. An odd/even effect related to the alkylene chain was noted for melting points and glass transition temperatures (Tg) of the polymers. The Tgs were relatively high, especially when compared to similarly structured polyal…
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.
