The reaction kinetics for the cure of epoxy resins with imidazoles were determined from Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry studies. The diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A and phenyl glycidyl ether were cured with various concentrations of 2-ethyl-4-methyl-imidazole ranging from 4.0 to 100.0 mol %. The first step in the curing process is the formation of epoxide/imidazole adducts. These adducts initiate the etherification reaction which crosslinks the resin. The kinetics were determined and confirmed for both the adduct and the etherification reactions as a function of the imidazole concentration. A model was developed and used to predict the concentrations of the unreacted epoxide groups and the reaction products for a wide range of imidazole concentrations and cure temperatures.
