Polynorbornenes are latest among the high-performance polymers in the field of membrane gas separation. Not much has been studied regarding their molecular dynamics till now. In the present work, we report dielectric and calorimetric investigations of series of polynorbornenes with rigid main backbone and flexible (AlkO)3Si side groups with different length (Al = Propyl, Butyl, Octyl, Decyl). Two dielectrically active α and β relaxations observed are assigned to localized fluctuations and segmental relaxation of the flexible side groups of the polymer. A nanophase separation between the main and side chain parts is concluded from the presence of two dynamic glass transitions of the polymer, is confirmed by means of small and wide-angle X-ray scattering. Furthermore, for the first time, the glass transition temperatures of these polymers which are beyond or near to their degradation temperature are determined using Fast Scanning calorimetry employing high heating and cooling rates. The glass transition temperatures of the polymers decrease with increasing length of the alkyl side chain.
