Imide-aryl ether thiophene copolymers were prepared and their thermal and mechanical properties were investigated. A key feature of these copolymers is the incorporation of the 2,5-thiophene moiety using 5,5'-bis[(3-aminophenoxy)thienyl-2] ketone or 5,5'-bis[(4-aminophenoxy)thienyl-2] ketone as diamines in polyimide syntheses. The preparation of these thiophene diamines involved the nucleophilic aromatic substitution of bis(5-chlorothienyl-2) ketone with either 3- or 4-aminophenol in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidinone using potassium carbonate. These diamines were reacted with various compositions of pyromellitic dianhydride and 4,4'-oxydianiline to synthesize the desired poly(amic acid)s. Films were cast and cured (300°C) to effect the imide formation, and the resulting films showed tough ductile mechanical properties with high glass transition temperatures that decreased with increasing thiophene diamine content.
