In recent years, polyimides are more and more used as high performance polymers because of their excellent thermal, mechanical and electrical properties. In this work, dielectric properties and relaxation behavior of some Polyimide films were studied on the basis of dielectric constant, dielectric loss and AC conductivity taking into account their variation with frequency and temperature. According to the results, three types of relaxations α, β and γ at decreasing temperature were detected, the origin of these relaxations and the influence of the chemical structure on changes in dielectric and electrical properties were discussed.
