Abstract : A method of curing low molecular weight polyferrocenylenes. Low molecular weight polyferrocenylenes are reacted with 1,1'-ferrocenedicarboxaldehyde or a substituted ferrocenedicarboxaldehyde in the presence of a suitable catalyst. This reaction produces a low molecular weight copolymer which, when subjected to heat and pressure, thermosets or cures to a hard, heat-resistant, radiation-resistant resin. The cured products of this invention are useful as resins in the formation of laminated structures.
