LAKSHMI, B; SHIVANANDA, K.N y MAHENDRA, K.N. REACTIVITY STUDIES OF MALEIMIDE EPOXY RESIN WITH LONG CHAINED AMINES. J. Chil. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2011, vol.56, n.3, pp. 725-728. ISSN 0717-9707. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-97072011000300001.
After phenylmaleimido group was successfully incorporated into bisphenol-A type epoxy resins (B-13 ) to result in compound possessing both oxirane ring and maleimide reactive groups. The cured maleimide epoxy samples are obtained by thermally curing of the maleimide epoxy (MIE) compounds with aliphatic long chained amines such as Tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA), Bishexamethylenetriamine (BHMT), 2-methyl pentamethylenediamine (2-MPMDA) and 2,2,4-trimethy diamines (2,2,4-TMDA) exhibited excellent thermal stability and good chemical (acid/alkali/solvent) and water absorption resistance. Morphological studies by the SEM technique further confirmed the phase homogeneity net work of the cured systems.
