Two ways of synthesis of polymer networks based on diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A, bisphenol A, and sulfanilamide: Kinetics study Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The kinetics of reactions of ternary systems based on bisphenol A diglycidyl ether, bisphenol A, and a sulfanilamide curing agent were investigated using HPLC, during two different synthesis paths. The influence of tetrabutylphosphonium tetrafluoroborate as a catalyst for the epoxy-phenol reaction was studied. For the same initial composition, polymers differing by the crosslink point distribution and the chain length between crosslinks were synthesized. Different solid-state behavior is expected in these two categories of networks. 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
