Abstract: Oligomeric phthalonitrile resins exhibit excellent char retention when heated to 1000 °C under nitrogen (> 75%). However, very little is known about the properties and performance of these materials when heated to higher temperatures (> 1500 °C). In addition, blended systems that contain phthalonitrile resins and secondary phases specifically included to enhance char formation at temperatures in excess of 1000 °C have not been previously synthesized. In order to better understand the char forming properties of phthalonitrile resins and identify conditions that maximize char yield, thermogravimetric analysis scans to temperatures exceeding 2000 °C were conducted on a series of different phthalonitrile resins and blended systems. The resulting char from these studies was then characterized via powder X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. Differential scanning calorimetry and rheological characterizations were used to determine the proper thermal treatments for curing blended systems and to probe the interactions between different phases of the blend.
