This research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of a piezoelectric (β-CN)APB/ODPA polyimide. The remanent polarization and piezoelectric d31 and g33 coefficients are reported to assess the effect of synthesis variations. Each of the materials exhibits a level of piezoelectricity which increases with temperature. The remanent polarization is retained at temperatures close to the glass transition temperature of the polyimide.
