Abstract: International audienceIn this work, ionic liquids based on trihexyl(tetradecyl) phosphonium associated with bis(2,4,4-trimethylpentyl) phosphinate [TMP] and dicyanamide [DCA] counter anions were used as reactive additives within epoxy/amine networks. We have demonstrated that the addition of ionic liquids plays a key role on the kinetics of polymerization but also on the final properties of the epoxy networks. Structurations at the nanoscale combined with excellent thermal stability and good mechanical propert…
