We have carried out a comparative study on the thermomechanical properties and interfacial fracture for two polyimides, a rigid-rod like BPDA-PDA and a flexible-chain PMDA-ODA. This study is focused on the correlation between material strength and polymeric chain morphology. A strong correlation was observed, with high chain packing order giving rise to strong material strength.
