The synthesis and characterization of poly(phthalazinone ether ketone) (PPEK) for high-temperature electric energy storage applications is described. It was found that PPEK displayed excellent stability of the dielectric properties over a broad frequency and temperature range. Little change in the breakdown field and discharge time has been observed in PPEK with the increase of temperature up to 190 °C. A linear correlation between the AC conductance and the angular frequency implied that the hopping as a dominant conduction process contributed to the dielectric loss. Superior energy densities, remarkable breakdown strengths, and fast discharge speeds have been demonstrated in PPEK at various temperatures.
