A series of poly(ether ketone) copolymers were synthesized by the Friedel-Crafts reaction of diphenyl ether and a mixed acid chloride comprising isophthaloyl chloride and terephthaloyl chloride. The permeabilities of H2, 02, CO and Nz through the as-cast films at 30°C were influenced by the catenation effect, that is, increase of m-catenation ratio relative to p-catenation induces denser packing of the polymer chains and reduces gas diffusion. The difference of crystallinity among the polymers was too small to exhibit a clear influence on the gas permeability. Changes of permeability through the copolymer films by thermal treatment were interpreted as being due to the decrease of the amorphous region caused by thermal crystallization. Densification of the polymer matrix in the amorphous region was not observed.
