Recent technological advances demanded polyimides of improved versatility in terms of electronic, optical and thermal properties. In this work, a series of poly(siloxane-imide) block copolymers were synthesized in order to investigate the effect on their optical and electronic properties. The polyimide unit was derived from 3,3′,4,4′-Biphenyltetracarboxylic dianhydride (BPDA) and 4-(4-{1-[4-(4-aminophenoxy) phenyl]-1-methylethyl} phenoxy) aniline (BAPP) while the siloxane unit was derived from 3-[3-(3-aminopropyl)-1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxanyl] propylamine (DMS) and Poly(dimethylsiloxane), bis(3-aminopropyl)terminated. (PDMS). The structure of the polyimide was characterized by fourier transformer infra red (FT-IR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, elemental analysis, solution viscosity and gas permeation chromatography (GPC). Scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis suggested a microphase separation between the two components. The refractive index and dielectric properties showed a decreasing trend with increased silicone unit in the polyimide backbone. However ultra violet visible (UV-Vis) and optical transparency was not significantly affected. Electronic and optical properties of this copolymer were discussed in relation to the polysiloxane content. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
