Abstract

Two aromatic polyamides containing azo linkage in the main chain were synthesized and characterized by TGA, DTA, and pyrolysis–GC–chemical ionization mass spectra. Fibers were also spun using a laboratory scale wet spinning unit and their mechanical and morphological properties studied. The results were correlated with structure and spinning conditions.
