In this paper synthesis maleimide polymers from sulfamethoxazole via free radical polymerization method. The chemical structures of the prepared monomers and polymers confirmed by some spectroscopic analysis (FTIR, and NMR spectroscopies) besides the thermal stability were analyzed by DSC and TGA techniques. Thermal properties of the copolymers which showed very good thermal stability and Tg value (260, 300, 270 °C).
