Abstract:

A thermally stable polyenaminonitrile has been synthesized by vinylic nucleophilic substitution polymerization. The polymer does not lose mass below 446 degrees, and retains 70 of its original mass at 900 degrees by TGA in nitrogen. Evidence is presented for an unprecendented curing reaction which does not involve the emission of volatile by-products.
