Abstract : Polyether-Polyimide Block Copolymers; Three series of Polyether-Polyimide (PEPI) block copolymers were synthesized. Soft segments were poly(propylene glycol) (PPO) Mn = 2,000 and 4,000. Hard segments were pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) and di-(2-hydroxyethyl)-dimethylhydantoin (H). The hard segments were formed from 4,4'-diphenylmethane disocyanate (MDI) with PMDA or 95% PMDA and 5% H. The first series designated as PEPI-2K was synthesized with PPO-2,000, MDI and PMDA. The second series, PEPI-2KH, used PPO-2,000, MDI, 95% PMDA+ 5% H. The third series, PEPI-4K, used PPO-4,000, MDI and PMDA. PEPI copolymers in each series varied by weight percent of hard segment.
