Aromatic polyimides with amine end groups are chain-extended (molecular weight increased) by reacting them with aromatic di- or tri- anhydrides. The reaction can either be at a temperature above the melting point of the reactants or in solvents for the reactants. The polyimides can be shaped and formed prior to chain-extending.
