Reaction of a monofunctional epoxy (Phenylglycid ether) with a primary, bi-functional amine (aniline) - Example 3

DSC measurements with epoxy/amine ratios of 1:2, 1:1 and 2:1

Typical characteristics

  • equilibria reactions
  • at least 2 parellel reactions
  • autocatalysis by OH-groups
  • successful description of the complete data set by the used model, independent from the start-ing composition!
  • Heating rates in each case 1, 2, 5 und 10 K min-1
