Abstract: Abstract This paper describes the application of a molecular sensor for in‐situ monitoring of epoxy‐diamine cure via remote sensing fiberoptic probes. A custom‐built, fiberoptic fluorimeter allows on‐line recording of fluorescence spectra directly from the cure environment. Cure reactions in epoxy‐diamine network, such as diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A‐diaminodiphenyl sulfone (DGEBA‐DDS) or diglycidyl ether of butanediol‐diaminodiphenyl sulfone (DGEB‐DDS), have been monitored by a reactive molecular sensor, …
