This work presents novel polyimides (PIs) derived from 1R,2S,4S,5R-cyclohexanetetracarboxylic dianhydride (H″-PMDA). In particular, the PI system derived from H″-PMDA and 4,4′-oxydianiline simultaneously achieved excellent optical transparency, a very high Tg exceeding 300 °C, high toughness (elongation at break > 70%), and good solution processability as plotted within the target area in this figure. The results suggest that the H″-PMDA-based PI systems can be promising candidates for novel high-temperature plastic substrate materials in electronic paper displays.
