The [epsilon]' values were comparable with that of H polyimide film--a polyimide based on pyromellitic dianhydride and 4,4'-diaminodiphenylether, which is one of the most common high-performance dielectrics used in microelectronic applications, having a dielectric constant of 3.
The success of pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) and 3,3,4,4' benzophenonetetracarboxylic dia-nhydride (BTDA) as epoxy hardening agents is attributed to their tetrafunctionality, which leads to higher density of crosslinks, thus higher heat distortion temperature (HDT) and increased chemical and solvent resistance (17).

We have reported two new [pi]-conjugated diamines, 5,5'-bis(4-arninophenyl)-2,2'-bifuryl (PFDA) and 2,2'-bis(furyl)benzidine (FurylBZ), and their polyimides (PIs), prepared from pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) (14, 15).
Polyanhydrides, particularly pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) (24, 25), and polyepoxides (26-28) have been widely used for chain extension and branching of PET, allowing a significant increase in molecular weight, intrinsic viscosity, and melt viscosity.
Pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) and benzidine (BZD) are also commercially available, and were used as received.
