(chemistry) Any polymer whose monomers are imides; used to make high-temperature resins
(chemistry) Any of a range of polymers containing amide (or peptide) repeat units; examples include proteins and nylon.
a synthetic resin in which the polymer units are linked by imide groups, used chiefly for heat-resistant films and coatings.
a polymer containing repeated amide groups
Polyimide (sometimes abbreviated PI) is a polymer of imide monomers belonging to the class of high performance plastics. With their high heat-resistance, polyimides enjoy diverse applications in roles demanding rugged organic materials, e.g.
a synthetic polymer of a type made by the linkage of an amino group of one molecule and a carboxylic acid group of another, including many synthetic fibres such as nylon.
A polyamide is a polymer with repeating units linked by amide bonds.Polyamides occur both naturally and artificially. Examples of naturally occurring polyamides are proteins, such as wool and silk.
