All polymers were readily soluble in polar organic solvents, such as N-methyl-2-pyrrolidinone (NMP) and N,N-dimethylacetamids (DMAc) and could be solution cast into tough and flexible films. The polyamides exhibited glass-transition temperature (Tgs) in the range 282-290 oC and char yield at 800 oC in nitrogen higher than 70%. The polyimides have Tgs between 289 and 303 oC, and they were fairly stable up to above 520 oC. All the polyamides and polyimides had the reversible oxidation redox characteristics on their cyclic voltammograms. They exhibited an enhanced electrochemical stability as compared with indoly-substitution. The polymer films also revealed stable electrochromic properties. The polyamide thin film can change color from pale yellow neutral state to green semioxidized state to dark green oxidized state. Advisor Committee Sheng-huei Hsiao - advisor
