Two aromatic polyimides and the corresponding poly(amic acid)s, with oxadiazole and para/meta phenoxyphenylene rings in the backbone, were synthesized and the structure — thermal properties correlation was followed by dynamic mechanical analysis. Concerning the poly(amic acid)s, the glass transition domain was emphasized only for the compound with meta-oriented rings because the process of imidization takes place with increasing temperature. A multiplex experiment was performed to calculate the activation energy of the transition localized under 200°C. Consecutive heating-cooling-heating cycles were accomplished. All phenomena are discussed by cross-examination of the storage modulus (E′), loss modulus (E″) and loss factor tanδ variation with temperature.
