A variety of perfluorocycloalkenyl (PFCA) aryl ether monomers and polymers with enchained triarylamine units were successfully synthesized, characterized and reported here. These polymers are highly thermally stable and show variable thermal properties. Successful conver- sion of the newly synthesized TAA enchained perfluoro- cyclopentenyl (PFCP) aryl ether polymers via formylation and EAS demonstrates the synthetic versatility of TAA moiety and provides an excellent option for application specific post polymerization reactions. The cross-linking behavior of PFCP aryl ether polymers was studied under different reaction conditions. The combination of pro- cessability, thermal stabilities, and tailorability makes these polymers suitable for a wide variety of applications including electro-optics, proton exchange membranes and super-hydrophobic applications.
