ABSTRACT

Poly(arylene ether nitrile)s with sulfonic and carboxylic groups (SCPEN) were synthesized to investigate their electrical properties. This new series of copolymers were prepared by copolymerization of phenolphthalein, potassium hydroquinonesulfonate, and 2,6-difluorobenzonitrile, in different mole ratios. Their thermal, mechanical and dielectric properties were investigated in detail. By adjusting the composition of sulfonic and carboxylic groups, it can be concluded that the dielectric constant increases with the increase of sulfonic groups, and mechanical and thermal properties improve with the increase of carboxylic groups. The as-prepared SCPEN films show potential applications in electronic storage materials, which provide insights into the correlation of SCPEN electrical properties with its chemical structure. The structure-property relationship is established to broaden the application of functionalized PEN. Furthermore, SCPEN with rich polar groups may also be used as the polymer matrix to increase the interaction with the filler surface, ensuring a better dispersion of filler in the matrix. This provides a reference for the development of high dielectric materials.
