The network formation processes for imidazole‐cured epoxy resins were examined by relating the reaction chemistry and the physical properties during cure. Network formation models were developed based on kinetic studies and the laws of conditional probability. These models were used to predict the weight‐average molecular weight, the gel point, and the sol fraction as a function of the resin composition and the processing conditions. Rheological and extraction experiments were conducted to confirm th…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
