Thermo Stimulated Current (TSC) combined with Dynamic Dielectric Spectroscopy (DDS) have been applied to the investigation of dielectric relaxation modes of an even–odd Polyamide PA 6,9. The correlation between results obtained by both methods allows us to describe precisely the molecular mobility. At high temperature, the various dielectric relaxation phenomena are separated by applying the dielectric modulus formalism. The comparison between the activation enthalpy values obtained by DDS and TSC leads to the assignment of the so-called α mode to cooperative movements of polymeric sequences. Molecular mobility of PA 6,9 is compared with the one of PA 11. The piezoelectric activity of PA 6,9 is shown and analyzed.
