Thermally Stable Polymers

  • Carl S. Marvel
Chapter

Abstract

Most organic polymeric materials melt below 200 °C and most of them begin to degrade rapidly at temperatures only slightly above 200°G. Thermally stable polymers are generally considered to be those which will withstand much higher temperatures without loss of strength or change of structure. In general we expect these materials to withstand at least 300°C in air and up to 500°C or higher in inert atmospheres. Polymers which show these properties are usually highly aromatic in structure, often with heterocyclic units, high melting, sometimes infusible and usually with low solubility in all solvents. This makes their fabrication very difficult and as a consequence limits their usefulness.
