Commercial epoxidized cardanol from cashew nut shell liquid was thoroughly analyzed using 1H and 13C NMR, SEC and titration in order to determine the structure. This epoxidized cardanol was reacted with isophorone diamine and Jeffamine D400 diamine in order to synthesize epoxy networks that exhibit interesting mechanical and thermal properties for coatings.
