Abstract : Towards the high performance nonlinear optical polymers, a novel class of side-chain NLO polyquinolines had been designed and the first side-chain NLO polyquinoline had also been synthesized in this period. The starting materials of 4,4'-diamino-3,3'-dibenzoyl-diphenyl ether and 2,4-diacetyl-(2-(N-ethyl- anilino)ethoxy)benzene for the side-chain polyquinoline had been synthesized and fully characterized. A crosslinkable maleimides terminated NLO oligomers and polymers via curing of aromatic diamines had been designed and the starting material had been prepared.
