Brian Dillman and Julie L. P. Jessop Chain transfer agents in cationic photopolymerization of a bis-cycloaliphatic epoxide monomer: Kinetic and physical property effects Journal of Polymer Science Part A: Polymer Chemistry 51
A systematic study of kinetic and physical property modulation of cationically cured epoxy resins through incorporation of organic alcohols is presented. A variety of alcohols, which are chain transfer agents when incorporated into epoxy resins, have been studied. The molecular weight, functionality, steric hindrance, and relative nucleophilicity of the alcohol were shown to have profound effects on the curing of the resin and the ultimate properties realized as a crosslinked polymer.
