A series of new poly (oxadiazole-imide)s that are soluble in polar solvents, and some of which are soluble in chloroform, have been prepared by incorporating the hexafluoroisopropylidene unit and other flexible linkages into the backbone. Films of these poly(oxadiazole-imide)s cast from solution are light-tan to yellow in colour and have ultimate tensile strengths ranging from 89.0 to 95.6 MPa. Initial weight loss occurs near 380°C in air by thermogravimetric analysis, while one polymer appears unchanged after isothermally ageing for 300 h at 300°C in air. The inherent viscosities ranged from 0.34 to 0.54 dl g- 1 in N,N-dimethylacetamide. The refractive indices of the poly(oxadiazole-imide)s are near 1.6 and the dielectric constants range from 2.9 to 3.2 at 1 MHz. Moisture absorptions of the poly(oxadiazole-imide)s are near 3% by weight. A new hexafluoroisopropylidene- and imide-containing dicarboxylic acid and its diacid chloride and six new ether- and imide-containing dicarboxylic acids and their diacid chlorides are also presented. These monomers were prepared from commercially available diamines and trimellitic anhydride without the use of an amide solvent.
