Title

Development and evaluation of epoxidized soybean oil-based polymers

Keywords and Phrases

Epoxidized soybean oil polymer; Amine-epoxy curing reaction; Rice hull particle board; Homopolymerization

Abstract

"The goal of this present research work is to develop a new epoxy type material from ESO and to use it as adhesive for rice hull-particleboard, thus producing an almost all natural product material from agriculture. The work presented in this dissertation concerns investigation of the curing reaction of ESO and the diamine curing agents, and the temperature effects over the course of the reaction. The approaches for increasing cross-link density also will be explored by considering the nature of internal epoxy groups in ESO and utilizing the temperature effects, thereby improving properties of the cured ESO polymers."--Objectives, page 8.
