The alicyclic epoxy resin used was (3',4'-epoxycyclohexane) methyl 3,4-epoxycyclohexyl-carboxylate (CER, [M.
The content of aliphatic and alicyclic oil hydrocarbons was reduced from 53,3 [+ or -] 7,46 g/kg to 2,2 [+ or-] 0,39 g/kg on average (Figure 2a).
These may belong to different derivatives of mono- and bicyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, but also to alicyclic compounds.
Polyimides-containing alicyclic structures have attracted much attention in recent years, due to their potential applications in opto-electronics and as low dielectric materials (12-16), because of their solubility, negligible birefringence, low refractive index, lack of color, and thermal stability.
It is evident that even a small increase of the heating rate supports the splitting of alicyclic rings and aliphatic groups in coal structure, and besides a considerable increase in the amount of hydrogen also brings the possibility of its additional formation through the secondary splitting of an increased amount of methane in the second stage.
Through the GC-MC analysis, the most probable high-abundance compounds in the extracts are low molecular alicyclic hydrocarbons, accounting for about 68.
Recently, aliphatic and/or alicyclic PIs have been highlighted for their applications in optoelectronics (as substrates for displays) and nanoelectronics (as interinsulating layers), due to their higher transparency and lower relative permittivity, compared to those of aromatic PIs (24-27).

Recently, aliphatic and/or alicyclic PIs have been highlighted for their applications in optoelectronics (as substrates for displays) and nanoelectronics (as interinsulthing layers) because of their higher transparency and lower relative permittivity when compared with those of aromatic PIs (15-18).
The medium values of activation energy are associated with break-up of the side chains in [beta]-position of aromatics, decomposition of normal alkanes with large molecular weight, Diels-Alder cyclization reaction and the rupture of alicyclic hydrocarbons.
