A versatile and facile synthetic approach to a series of fluorinated poly(arylene ether-1,3,4-oxadiazole)s has been described. The mild reaction conditions avoid the usage of moisture-sensitive agents and side-reactions associated with the conventional aromatic nucleophilic polycondensation. The polymers display excellent stability of the dielectric properties over a broad frequency and temperature range and high breakdown strength.
