A versatile method for the post-modification of sulfonated polyimides by charge-transfer (CT) complex formation between electron-deficient naphthalenediimide units in polyimide and electron-rich dihydroxynaphthalene was developed. CT complex hybrid films whose physicochemical properties, such as mechanical strength, differed from those of the original polyimide films were successfully fabricated.
