In this work we reports the synthesis and characterization of new amorphous poly(arylene ether)s which are composed of both aromatic ether ketone and either sulfone groups. Some details on the general physical properties of them will also be discussed. The purpose of this research is to synthesize and characterize new PESK's with high thermal stability, which are composed of both aromatic ether ketone and ether sulfone groups. As shown the synthesis of the PESK's was achieved through a nucleophilic substitution reaction of EBPODS, a new sequence ordered aromatic dihalide, and conventional aromatic diols. The molecular weight of the polymers may be controlled using a slight excess equimolar amount of one of the FBPODS or aromatic diol added. In addition to these physical properties, tough and transparent, thin films of the PESK's were easily cast from chloroform solution and they and high optical transmittance of over 80% in the wavelength range from 380 to 900 nm.
