A series of fluorinated aromatic polyethers was synthesized via aromatic nucleophilic substitution of highly fluorinated aromatics (1,2,4,5-tetrafluorobenzene, hexafluorobenzene, and decafluorobiphenyl) with bisphenol AF or bisphenol A. Polymerization with 1,2,4,5-tetrafluorobenzene was not observed, and polymerization of hexafluorobenzene with bisphenol proceeded only if the potassium carbonate-bisphenol ratio was carefully controlled. The polymer condensed from decafluorobiphenyl and bisphenol AF was prepared in 77% yield with an inherent viscosity of 1.01 dL/g. The polymer prepared from the condensation of decafluorobiphenyl with bisphenol A was obtained in 48% yield with an inherent viscosity of 0.28 dL/g. These polymers were very soluble in common organic solvents, formed clear, colorless films, and were thermally stable (〉 450°C by TGA). The fully fluorinated polymer exhibited low water uptake (0.3%) and dielectric constant (2.17). © 1992 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
