A novel approach for toughening thermosetting epoxy matrices using both thermoplastics and liquid reactive rubbers as modifiers has been investigated. The network structure of the modified epoxy systems was characterized using dynamic mechanical analysis, and the morphology of the multiphase structure was examined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). To investigate the continuity of the phase domains, the constituents in the phase domains were positively identified using solving etching and RuO, staining…
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.
