Synthesis of glycidyl amine adducts and their copolymerization with glycidyl methacrylate



Syntheses of new adducts from glycidyl methacrylate and the following amines: aniline, p-phenylenediamine, 4,4′-oxydianiline, 4,4′-diaminodiphenylmethane, 4,4′-diaminodiphenyl sulfone, 4,4′-thiodianiline, and 4,4′-diaminodicyclohexylmethane, are presented. These adducts were copolymerized with glycidyl methacrylate. The curing process was initiated thermally and by UV light. Thermomechanical properties of the obtained compositions were studied. © 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 98: 2461–2466, 2005
