Abstract: Abstract A commercial epoxy resin, consisting of a mixture of diepoxides based on diglycidyl ether of bisphenol‐A (DGEBA) and containing an epoxidized polypropylene glycol as reactive diluent, was characterized by 1HNMR, FTIR, SEC, and chemical analysis. The kinetics of the cure with ethylenediamine (EDA) was catalyzed by the (OH) groups present in a large amount in the commercial formulation. A second order kinetic behavior gave an accurate fitting of results obtained by different experimental techniques (DS…
