However, it is clear that in the P1 structure the intermolecular distance between the cyano groups in neighbouring molecules in the [011] direction is too short (2.
Polymerization occurs through the cyano groups on phthalonitrile units by an addition mechanism to afford the heterocyclic cross-linked products such as polytriazine, polyimine, and polyphthalocyanine, which ensures that these materials possess excellent thermal and oxidative stability [2, 11-13].

1-3) Fourier transform infrared studies have identified that in the early stages of the cure process, the intensity of the cyano and N=C=N bands decrease with an accompanying appearance of new bands assigned to the formation of an imino group by the intermolecular addition of hydroxyl to the DICY cyano functionality, and/or by the intramolecular nucleophilic substitution of hydroxyl at the imide functionality.
Here the carbon source was provided by a cyano compound and the reducing agent by carbon monoxide.
