Preparation and characterization of polybenzoxazine involving various additives

Hisar Telli, Ayşegül
Polybenzoxazines, a class of phenolic offering excellent mechanical and physical properties, have been developed to overcome the shortcomings of the traditional phenolic resins. The features of these polymers such as no requirement for harsh catalysts, releasing no by-product, molecular design flexibility and low melt viscosity make this class of polymers a promising candidate for various industrial and academic applications. Several methods such as preparation of alloys with other high performance polymers, designing of novel monomers and incorporation of additive compounds were employed to improve the performance of polybenzoxazines. In this work, polybenzoxazine composites involving various types of additives namely aromatic diboronic acid, boric acid, clay, zirconium diboride and diglycidyl ether bisphenol-A epoxy resin were prepared to improve thermal properties. In the first part, phenol and aniline based benzoxazine monomer, in the second part, difunctional benzoxazine monomer were synthesized and their composites were prepared. The structural and thermal characteristics of the benzoxazine monomers, polybenzoxazines and polybenzoxazine composites were analyzed by NMR, FTIR, vi DSC, TGA, XRD, DMA and DP-MS techniques. Improvement in the thermal characteristics were recorded by the incorporation of additives of the benzoxazine monomers.

Uyar, Tamer; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2003-01-01)
Preparation of block and graft copolymers of conducting polymers with insulating polymers with good mechanical properties have been attempted in order to improve their mechanical properties. Yet, complete structural characterization is still limited due to the insolubility of the polymer samples. In this work, direct insertion pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique had been applied for structural and thermal characterization of a polymer prepared by electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole on a poly(2-(N-py...

Polylactic acid (PLA) is the most widely known renewable biodegradable polymer due to its mass production, good processability, optical, mechanical, thermal, and barrier properties. Hence, the production rate of PLA increased gradually during the last decade. However, PLA is known to have slow degradation rate in soil and marine environments, leading to significant waste accumulation with widespread usage of the polymer. Thus, recycling of PLA waste will become a significant environmental concern in near fu...
