A new 2,2’-bis(furyl)benzidine (FurylBZ) with a well-defined conjugation length was synthesized, and its polyimide was prepared through thermal imidization of the poly(amide acid) obtained from the polymerization with pyromellitic dianhydride. FurylBZ monomer and its polyimide film were characterized to exhibit intense blue light emission with a relatively narrow peak width in the photoluminescence. The relative fluorescence quantum yield was measured at room temperature to be 0.52 for FurylBZ in 1,Cdioxane and 0.074 for the polyimide in films. The polyimide was thermally stable up to 400°C. The polyimide is amorphous, due to the bulky fury1 side groups. However, the polyimide chains were favorably aligned in the film plane due to the rod-like chain characteristic
