Title

Manufacturing and characterization of soy-based resin and nanocomposites

Abstract

"Polymeric materials developed from renewable resources such as vegetable oils are finding numerous applications in recent years. The fatty acid esters derived from the triglyceride vegetable oils are attractive source of raw materials for polymer synthesis. Among the triglyceride oils, soybean oil attracts great interest because of high degree of unsaturation which makes it possible to polymerize into useful structural materials. The focus of this research is to characterize soy-based epoxy resin system and to manufacture soy-based nanocomposites"--Abstract, leaf iii.
