A series of silicon containing poly(ester imide)s [PEIs] were synthesized using novel vinyl silane diester anhydride (VSEA) and various aromatic and aliphatic dimines by two-step process includes ring-opening polyaddition reaction to form poly(amic acid) and thermal cyclo-dehydration process to obtain poly(ester imide)s. VSEA was synthesized by using dichloro methylvinylsilane and trimellitic anhydride in the presence of K2CO3 by nucleophilic substitution reaction. The PEIs were characterized by FTIR spectroscopy. The thermal properties of PEIs were investigated by using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TG) methods. The prepared PEIs showed glass transition temperatures in the range of 320–350°C and their 5% mass loss was recorded in the temperature range of 500–520°C in nitrogen atmosphere. These had char yield in the range of 45–55% at 800°C.
