Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • In addition to new derivatives from the PBZX family and novel rigid-rod polymers such as rigid-rod polyimides  and aromatic poly(pyridinium salt), there are several special groups of rigid-rod polymers that have been studied and developed rapidly after the 1980s.
  • Among them are polyphenylenes,
    poly(phenylene ethynylene), poly(p-phenylenevinylene) (qv), polythiophenes, polyanilines, polyquinolines, and some organometallic polymers .
  • The rigid-rod fibers, especially  poly((benzo {1,2-d:4,5 -d } bisoxazole-2,6-diyl)-1,4-phenylene) PBZO, display superior tensile properties ,thermal stability, flame resistance, barrier properties, and low smoke generation as well as low moisture sensitivity.
  • Other good properties are cutting and abrasion resistance, chemical, oxidation, and radiation resistance, as well as a low dissipation factor .
  • Furthermore, the rigid-rod fibers exhibit potentially useful electrical and nonlinear optical behavior.
  • The rigid-rod polymer fibers also have rather small creep and stress relaxation. Their creep and stress relaxation rates are extremely
    low compared with the conventional nylon and polyester fibers.
  • Rodlike polymers have a finite
    degree of flexibility in the sp3-hybridized carbons in the polymer backbone, whereas rigid-rod polymers are entirely sp2-hybridized and can only be rotated axially since they have no points of flexibility along the backbone.
  • Rigid rod-like polymers form a nematic phase which is of the tumbling type at small and moderate shear rates, to become flow-aligning at high shear rates as a result of nonlinearity.
