This work describes mainly the synthesis and characterization of new co-polyimides obtained from the polycondensation of the dianhydride 4,4’-(hexafluoroisopropylidene)diphthalic anhydride (6FDA), 4,4’-oxydianiline (ODA) and the new diamine 3,5-diamino-N-(pyridin-4-ylmethyl)benzamide (PyDA). It describes as the different compositions of ODA and PyDA present in the polymers, produce variation on thermal and mechanical properties, which are important characteristics for the development of future nanocomposites derived from these polymers. Both PyDA monomer and polymers were characterized using FT-IR and NMR (1H, 13C, 19F, dept 135°, COSY, HMBC, HMQC) spectroscopy. The inherent viscosity of polymers is between 0.3 to 1.49 dL/g, they are soluble in aprotic polar solvents, such as: DMSO, DMF and DMA. In addition, all co-polymers showed thermal decomposition temperature and glass transition temperatures above 483 °C and 289 °C, respectively. Mechanical tests under tension of co-polymer films showed Young’s modulus between 2.1-3.9 GPa and tensile strength between 35.5 and 120.0 MPa. On the other hand, an increase in crystallinity and hydrophilicity is observed when increasing the amount of pyridinyl groups.
