Water sorption tests have been carried out for a novel epoxy resin having liquid crystalline character. The sorption isotherm. Relative to the expoxy resin cured in the nematic phase, does not indicate any substantial difference from the resin cured in the isotropic state. This is an indication that, as far as this class of thermosets is considered, the liquid crystalline order does not affect mechanism and equilibrium values of water uptake.
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.
