Study on thermodynamic properties of polypyromellitimide molding powder
Polypyromellitimide molding powder has been prepared. In the 78-370 K range, the dependence of the specific heat capacity (c(p)) on the temperature (T) is given by the polynomial: c(p)=0.8163+0.4592X+0.02468X(2)+0.1192X(3)+0.05659X(4) (J K-1 g(-1)) where X=(T-225.5)/144.5. Thermal decomposition in air starts at 716 K, and is complete at 1034 K. The standard combustion enthalpy is Delta(c)H=-26.442 kJ g(-1).
