Abstract The monomer 2,6,12-triaminotriptyeene was synthesized and the structure was confirmed by IR and 1H NMR spectra. Hyperbranched polyimides modified with different terminal groups were obtained from precursors, anhydride-and amino-terminated hyperbranched poly(amic acid)s from polymerization of A2+B3 system. From gel permeation chromatogram (GPC) characterization, representative products had high molecular weight. All polymers had good solubility in CHCl3, DMF and tetrahydrofuran (THF), and performed no detective Tgs in the range of 50-300℃ and high TdS above 455℃ when 5% weight loss.
