Review Article


The effect of structural inhomogeneities on the equilibrium flexibility of rigid-chain aromatic polymers containing complex condensed cycles in the main chain has been studied. The non-flatness of complex condensed cycles leads to a significant decrease in the equilibrium flexibility of rigid-chain polymers based on them and, consequently, to a deterioration of their mechanical properties. It is shown that the non-planarity of these cycles can reduce the Kuhn segment by several times. The introduction of phenyl substituents into condensed cycles reduces the non-planarity of such cycles and makes it possible to obtain a polymer with sufficiently high physical characteristics.
