Abstract : Dithioether-linked phthalonitrile monomer are prepared by a substitution reaction between 4-nitrophthalonitrile and a dimercaptan and are polymerized to a high-temperature, oxidation-resistant polymer by heating them at a temperature above their melting point. The rate of polymerization is increased by the addition of an amine. Electrical conductivity of the polymer can be increased to the conductor range by heating the polymer above about 400 deg C.
