Liquid crystalline epoxy resin based on biphenyl mesogen: Thermal characterization
An epoxy monomer of 4,4′-diglycidyloxybiphenyl (BP) was synthesized and cured with a tetra-functional amine, sulfanilamide (SAA), to produce novel liquid crystalline epoxy resins (LCERs). The thermal properties, liquid ...
Creep-resistant behavior of self-reinforcing liquid crystalline epoxy resins
The creep behavior of a liquid crystalline epoxy resin (LCER) was investigated and compared with that of a non-LCER prepared from the same epoxy monomer. The experimental data was evaluated using Burgers' model to explain ...
Cure kinetics of liquid crystalline epoxy resins based on biphenyl mesogen
(Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 2014)
The cure kinetics of a biphenyl-based liquid crystalline (LC) epoxy resin (LCER) was studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and polarized optical microscopy. The effects of LC phase formation on the cure ...
Liquid crystalline epoxy resin based on biphenyl mesogen: Effect of magnetic field orientation during cure
A biphenyl based epoxy monomer, 4,4′-diglycidyloxybiphenyl (BP), was synthesized and cured with a tetra-functional amine, sulfanilamide (SAA), to obtain a liquid crystalline epoxy network. The curing behavior of BP with ...
